The writing in this book is beautiful. I loved how the main character Tara, is trying to come out of the problems. This book is set in Punjab and being a Punjabi I could relate so much to this book! It is like I found my roots through this book. I could get the feeling of Freedom that the main character was longing for. The author has explained the meaning of love in a very different manner. The relationship between the children and Tara was so surreal. This book has surely taught me how to stop predicting life and just go with the flow. I am so motivated with this book that how Tara came out of all the problems she faced. The biji touch and the traditional Punjabi culture hooked me up! There is always hope and love in this world and I am so happy that I read this book! This book has destroyed me and I can’t wait to read more books from this author!
