Key To My Soul

Author : Probal Mazumdar
Genre : Romance

Book's Epigram :
"When Siddharth, a lonely young man with a failed marriage gets a sudden phone-call from a mysterious person about his lost childhood lover, Hazel, and learns that she is battling for life, he is shaken to the core. He also learns that she had left certain letters for him fifteen years back that never reached him. It disturbs him so much that he rushes to the hospital in his old hometown. There he discovers an eclipsed past buried in time that is riddled with dangerous surprises, trauma, twists of fate, sacrifices that exemplify true love and the real reasons for the tragic end of their childhood love story. But will Hazel ever open her eyes to see him..."

My Critique:
The book is nicely written and to the point. The story has a flow that keeps you with itself. The book is written in multiple chapters and every chapter is appropriately lengthy. From the The book is very well written and very precise according to the story. The author seems to have mastered the skill of constructing complicated characters. Hazel and Siddarth are the protagonists. With passage of time or say with every new page, I could find new colours in their characters. Their strong love is challenged and the way after so many struggles they handle their life.

Its not just a simple love story, but a medley of love, revenge, friendship, parenthood, separation, betrayal, purpose-less life, heartbreak. The plot of the book though looks like a simple love story has lot of twists/turns and keeps glued till the end. The author has put forward some nice reminders of a different era along with world highlights during that time as he walks the reader through the different twists.

Undoubtedly this book is worth reading and will add charm to your personal library.
