From Ashes To Dreams by Rashmi Trivedi is a story of Naina and her friends. Naina who is growing up at an orphanage has so many dreams to fulfil once she leaves the orphanage. How will she strive in a completely different world?  how will she fulfil all her dreams? there were so many questions when I started reading the book.

The plot of the story is Interesting. I was curious when I started reading the book. But then after reading a few pages, it was getting tedious. I found it the same usual story. Later after few chapters, the story gets interesting.  It has lots of twists and turns.

The narration of the story is Crisp and engaging. At few places, the author shared too many details while, I found at some places, details were missing. Like what was there in the letters that were there with Naina. 

The language used by the author is simple and Lucid. The writing style of the author is Gripping and appealing. The storyline is very clear and simple. The Climax was unexpected.

The characters that the author made are strong and interesting. I loved the character development done by the author. Each character had a vital role to play. I liked Naina’s and Rajitha’s character the most.

Failures can be your stepping stones, difficult though it seems like a phoenix you rise again From Ashes to Dreams.

The pace of the story is slow. The flow of the story is smooth. Themes like  Love, relationship, friendship, are used by the author. The author portrayed each and every emotion in a wonderful way.  There’s drama and dialogues which keeps the reader invested in. One can relate to the story from the very first page.

 The message of Love yourself first is beautifully conveyed by the author. There’s so much to learn from this book.

Overall, Strong characters, wonderful plot and Crisp narration make it a good read. I loved the title and the cover of the book.

Sometimes life brings you at a crossroad, where you have no choice but to live every day as if it was your last one. Naina was at such a crossroad! An orphan, she did not have much to look forward to in life, until she fell in love. Love gave her wings and she started to fly, only to come crashing down as the wind beneath her wings turned into a storm. She tries putting an end to her now wretched existence, but fate has some other plans for her. She comes to know that she has limited time to live and decides to start living everyday instead of merely surviving. She lives every moment without worrying about the future she does not have or the past that could not be undone. She falls in love once again, this time with life! Will fate respect her fortitude?
