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 .
