Heart broken she stumbles upon her mother’s diary .Written some thirty three years ago , it talks about someone she met and fell in love at first sight. What follows is a fairy tale . A girl in her early twenties is swept off her feet by the man of her dreams. It’s a passionate , selfless tale of two lovers . Does this love story see the light of the day ? Is love alone enough or is togetherness a part of it? Is Aarna prepared to face the truth about her mother and this mystery man ?
Love was never easy and if it was, it wasn’t love.

Meera- This book is all about Love. I loved reading it and finished it in a go. Firstly, I loved the title and cover of the book. It’s attractive and Interesting. It’s all about compromises, that one makes in life, it’s about first love.
it’s the story of Aarna who finds her mother’s diary, which is about the life moments she never shared with her. It’s an old diary which unfolds her Mother’s story. The best and worst moments of Life.The story of Meera.

The start of the story is really good. I loved how it started. One can easily connect with the story well. It has a grip. The narration of the story is also good.  It’s like a daughter reading her mother’s story. The pace of the story is lil slow and sometimes the story gets philosophical.  The tempo of the story is good, as it has many twists and turns. It’s about the pain she went through when she Loved more than allowed. It’s an emotional story, conversations and lives of Mother and daughter, a well-narrated story. The Characters that the author made, are attractive and connecting. One will fall in love with Aaditya’s Character. How can one forget Meera’s Character who had fought all her life for love. Who has struggled all her life. The pain that she had all her life, her teachings to her daughter. It was overall a wonderful read. The narration was also switching from past to present. Meera to Aarna which gave a clear Idea of the story. I also loved the end, the climax of the story was amazing. The way Aarna reacted, portrayed how strong she was like her mother.What happens when one love more than it’s allowed.  The language was also easy, simple and interesting.  The author has a good hold on vocabulary. The plot is also smooth to read.

Overall it’s a good read with an interesting plot, simple language, interesting vocabulary, smooth narration, strong Characters makes it a wonderful read.
