It is a collection of 15 soothing short stories and poems which are woven beautifully. In each work, you could identify with the author’s penchant for nature. The way she presented her own emotions and thoughts through them is amazing.

Actually, the melancholy is the central theme which is brought forth in different ways. Also, a ray of hope which shrouds melancholy eventually is also pointed in the book. In short, this book is about love and the hope of something good existing in this universe. I am enamored with a few stories. They revolve around dreams and reality, light and darkness, right and wrong, moral and immoral, lucky and unlucky. It is the effect of the opposites which underline this short book.
The writing style is, without a hint of doubt, intriguing. It is beautiful and keeps you glued to the book. It is attracting and bewitching in a way that you connect to the sadness, to the characters. The flow of individual story and poetry is good. More importantly, the cover is pretty simple and charming. Also, the brownie points would be given for its precise and concise content.
