“That’s the problem with all intelligent people. You ask too many questions. Sometimes, it’s better to accept things just the way that they are.”From the book Meet Me at the Cusp by Priyam Acharya
Priyam Acharya’s Meet Me at the Cusp is a journey of Pashmina, a social media influencer who is married to the love of her life, her best friend. But is love enough in a relationship? The couple with a busy lifestyle didn’t find much time for themselves and love started fading away. Is this the life I want? Is this the life I expected to live? Pashmina started questioning her equation with Arjun. While she was in the glam life of social media and had a not-so-steady relationship with Arjun, She met Rinzing, Arjun’s friend and a shy, fine art photographer.
They both instantly clicked together and Pashmina realized the life she always wanted. Meanwhile, Arjun who sheared on her seeks forgiveness. Where will life take them? Will Pashmina get the love she deserves? What lies ahead for her and Rinzing?
Meet Me at the Cusp by Priyam Acharya is a heartwarming story that shares how unpredictable life is and how it’s okay to take a stand for ourselves and our happiness even if it means at times going against your loved ones. As we find ourselves in the shoes of Pashmina, Arjun, and Rinzing, we get a sneak peek of Marriage in a traditional conservative household. She shares about relationships between the family members and how it becomes difficult to accept a love marriage.
The plot of the story is intriguing, making us question whether is love enough to make a marriage work. With time a person changes but isn’t it good to pause and see how and where your relationship is going? Is your person happy? With a crisp, descriptive narrative, Priyam weaves a beautiful tale of soul-searching, love, loss, hope, happiness, and a second chance. The story picks up well after a few chapters, especially when Pashmina realizes how being loved feels like. Priyam beautifully expresses the emotions each one of them goes through, especially Pashmina and Rinzing. One thing she never leaves here is the guilt both of them live with, the guilt of cheating.
This journey is as vibrant as the cover is. Filled with ups and downs, guilt and pleasure, happiness and sadness, loving and unloving, and most importantly finding oneself. Priyam’s writing style is enchanting with a practical approach making readers witness the reality of life. The story unfolds beautifully, each layer adding a twist to the story. It’s a bit slow-paced story with too much description which at times may make readers tedious. What life unfolds for Pashmina ahead makes me stick to the story. It’s a breezy read with a tinge of philosophy and self-growth. Just like a seed that grows, Pashmina’s bond with Rinzing blooms, and her perspective on life changes which is interesting to read.
With relatable and well-developed characters, You will go through various emotions as you read the book. Each character goes through a journey that is intriguing to read, adding depth to the story. I loved Mrs. Bakshi’s story journey the most. Priyam here, not only focuses on love and soul searching, she focuses on family too which again adds depth to the story. The way each family supports the child tells a lot about them as a person, which is again exciting to read.
The second half of the story is too good. When Pashmina understands the true meaning of life and how there’s still goodness around. You will see fights and love between couples, how society reacts when one ends a marriage, how difficult it gets to adjust to a family that doesn’t accept you, and the feeling of being unloved and loved. You witness it all here. The conflicting emotions and societal norms. It’s a good read, no less than a Bollywood story with a dramatic climax. Readers would enjoy it more with fewer details and dialogues as it picks up well after a few chapters.
In all, Meet Me at the Cusp is a light, heartwarming, and exciting journey of love. Some lessons, we have to learn alone and this is what this book teaches us. To love, to choose ourselves every single time. Like reading dramatic reads? You can count on this one.
