My thoughts after reading the book
Its a lovely emotional love story . The author has depicted the feelings of love,intimacy , passion, envy , sacrifice so beautifully . The second part of the book is so gripping that I just couldn’t get up before knowing the end of the heart rendering love story . The debut author Hamid Baig has wonderfully narrated the heart of Saadiq which limitlessly loves Maryam . The part when the novel emerges with Maryam’s daughter came so much alive in front of my eyes that my heart pumped faster and I could feel the storyline in my tears too . Overall I would say that it’s an eternal love story .
Those few words from the book which made a special place in my heart :-
*We , as human beings are the only ones with the power to help or hurt ourselves or others .
*Not every man with a heart is understanding , not every man with ears is a listener .
*We can’t fear dictate our lives.
At the end I must say that I really enjoyed the novel and if you too love UNCONDITIONAL LOVE then it’s a very good pick for you .
