“I heard them mourn my death. I lay in the next room. Motionless, silent, and staring at the ceiling.”

“When it comes to a broken person, some of them are expert at blinding you. Spend an entire evening with such a person, but you may still not know how he is crushing inside.”

“Who would say no to him? He is smart, intelligent, super handsome, rich, suave and sophisticated. He’s perfect!”

“Pooja gave no explanation. She asked no forgiveness. She just arrived in his home, resenting him for being her husband.”

“He had smiled as if nothing was wrong.
He had behaved as if he still had his dreams and hopes.
He had pretended as if it didn’t hurt.
But it did.”
Does Destiny hold the key to our happiness?
Is it always the feeble that is the victim?
Love can be the embrace of heaven. But what happens when it unleashes hellfire?
Lose yourself in the intense narrative of You Came Like Hope as it unleashes a rollercoaster of emotions, uncovers some bitter truths, challenges widespread prejudices, and forces you to reconsider your beliefs.  


The story revolves around Peehu, Pakhi, Adih, Uday, and Mani. Pakhi and Peehu though both are twin sisters are two different personalities. Pakhi a confident and charming girl who receives success every mile where else, Peehu who has bad luck, and is a complete opposite of Pakhi. She always wishes to be like Pakhi, and god approved her wish. What will happen next? was the question that remained in my mind.
I loved the title and cover of the book. It too attractive. The plot that the author has set is impressive.
The story started at a slow pace then picking up the grip. It was just a perfect pace. The tempo of the story is also good, full of twists and turns. I loved the characters. I fell in love with Adih’s character. The author justified each and every character well, everyone had its own importance. The author has written this story beautifully, one can easily connect with the story. The relationship that two sisters shared, cousin’s bond, parents behavior, regaining confidence etc the emotions that were described beautifully. The pace somewhere was slow but the curiosity to know what will happen next made me read this book till the end. I loved the way the book started. The author left no stone unturned to make this story an interesting read. Adih and Mani’s equation, Rashmi and Peehu’s equation were my favourite. Overall, it’s a good engaging, fiction story that one must read.
The amazing plot, strong characters, simple and connecting language makes this story worth a read.

I would recommend everyone to read it!!
