About The Book
Things are not going well for Maansi Cavale. Her depression is worsening, she barely passes her university exams and she winds up stuck at home, full of regret and unable to find a job. She’d do anything for a way out. Though Maansi previously considered arranged marriage an outdated tradition (only to be agreed to if you’re in your mid-forties and unable to bag anybody yourself), a chance meeting at an Indian wedding party changes everything. Desperate to escape the shackles of monotony and unemployment, she agrees to marry the handsome and wealthy Aryan Alekar. She convinces herself a new lifestyle and wealth will lift her out of the pit. She secures the marriage, but not before serving up a few lies about herself… As they settle into married life, Aryan remains a mystery to Maansi: some days warm and loving, others cold and distant. Maansi can’t help but wonder…who is Aryan Alekar really? And why did he choose to marry so young? While living with Aryan, Maansi realises she could never be satisfied playing housewife. After all, she once had goals and dreams. While searching for the ambitious Maansi she has buried, Maansi starts to realise that the man she has married is even further from what he seems… Can she salvage their union or will they set each other free?
Before I start with my review I would like to say that I loved this beautiful cover, so simple but intense at the same time! It’s a design that shouts at me; pick me I am worth it! And let’s be honest, this is maybe not the typical book you’ll pick, but sometimes standing out is the difference between being chosen or not. This is the story of Maansi and Aryan, they have an arranged marriage, they don’t know much about each other but for their situation the families decided that they would make a great couple. As you can imagine things will not be easy, there are so many secrets between them that will keep the reader eager to know more. I don’t believe in arranged marriages, maybe because is not in my culture, I’ve seen so many movies where they always end horrible… That’s what attracted me of this story, the need to know more about the culture and how the characters feel about it. And I was not disappointed at all, the story is told between the two characters, the independent Maansi and the cold Aryan. Don’t judge them before you know their story, I think you’ll be surprised! And that’s all I’ll say about the story, I loved how the author touched so many difficult themes but in an uncomplicated way, mixing them with the story and making this a powerful and interesting book for any reader. This is the first book by Serena Kaur, and I can’t wait to read her next one! Ready to discover “All The Words Unspoken”?
