The cover of the book was so alluring that I ended up reading the book at one go. It was one of those books I loved turning pages with love. Running my fingers along the lovely sketches. Self Help books are generally avoided because of it being preachy. This book however scores because it was not preachy but in turn using a parable to teach the simplistic rules and values of life that you are taken aback.
This book is about friendship, the ability to trust and letting go. One often underestimates the power of learning to submit and accept. Funny and I know it was intended, you realize that Shona’s story is that which is an every day story and for a moment I felt it was about me. The fact that the book was relatable made it such an interesting read. Shona’s story is probably about every other person who craves to leave everything behind and create a whole new world to live her own dream.
Being brought up in captivity Shona has no idea about the world outside and as she embarks upon a life ahead she discovers a whole new world! Most often in life we have a choice, but most often we refuse to acknowledge a few things as choices. This book emphasizes the importance of these choices.
What really impressed me is Rohini Singh’s writing style which just flows, leaving you with a sense of calm. The sketches just added to the overall reading experience. I loved this book.
