Book Blurb – Young, pretty and successful, Twisha Khanna has it all. She works hard and has no time for frivolities like love. After all, being the creative head of a happening travel magazine is no joke.So when she travels to Shimla on an assignment, the last thing on Twisha’s mind is love. But then, life has other plans. On finding a stack of old love letters that speak of an unrequited romance, Twisha is convinced that she must find the man who wrote these letters and help him. Along the way, she meets spoilt rich boy Alex, who is everything she would NOT want in a man. As the two try to reunite the old lovers mentioned in the letters, they are hardly aware that how they feel about love and life is going to change forever
Book Epigram – This book starts with the love letter written by David to his beloved with a lot of hope and belief. David keeps writing the letters to his beloved. After a certain time he stops getting the response of those letters, but he kept continue writing. Two girls named Twisha and Bobby come to Shimla for an official assignment for a month and get a big pile of love letters in their apartment which they had opted for the rent. Initially they show no interest but when they read then they touched by David’s love and started feelings for this emotions toward his beloved. Finally they both decide to meet with David and find his lost love. During the search lots of ups and down happen and Twisha who never believed in love, fell in love. The writer is herself a lady hence she has nicely presented the love in deeper and special way.
My Critique – The baseline of the story is love that the writer ‘Anamika Mishra’ has used very well throughout the book. The love and faith of David for her beloved Jasmine is very well displayed. He keeps informing her about all that happen to his life through letters. There are not many characters in the story but all the characters are very well-defined. The story keeps you moving and filled with the hope that things will be sorted at the end. Mood swing and full attitude nature of Twisha, who is the main character of the story, is portrayed really well. The writer takes you with herself to the imaginary tour of Shimla which keeps you reminding of a hill station and its beauty. The book is written in a simple way, to the point and full of emotions. I liked the book.
