A beautiful romantic story of love and hope. I liked the way the author has narrated the story. It is simple yet captivating. The author has very well explained the difference between spirituality and superstition.

It feels sad to realise that even today, we don't often talk about mental health issues, instead chose to remain silent and make it a taboo or stigma in our society

The narration is very well-paced. The language used is simple and lucid. I liked the story and it is different from normal romance stories that we read.
