Happy ending? Read and See
I read this book in one sitting. I am a avid reader, and tend to read insanely fast. But enough about me, let's talk about the story, shall we?
Read the story now
The title tells me that this is going to be a mushy typical romance. However when I started reading, I got none of that. Cries of Love is about respect for family traditions no matter how old they are, and how well they blend into modern society. In this story, it doesn't bode well for Ash and Bijay.
Bijay is forced into an arranged marriage as he is in love with an entirely different woman. He doesn't defy his parents publicly, and goes on with the arranged marriage. However he is is still in love with another woman, and basically builds his life around the woman he loves and not the one he is married to.
All hell breaks lose when he learns that his wife has been stepping out on him. How does he know? She is pregnant, and he has not slept with her at all.
His wife, Renu, is young and really wants her husband to love her, but he doesn't. She eventually learns that he never wanted to marry her in the first place, and as soon as the opportunity arises, she sleeps with another man.
Renu is not a vindictive woman, but the other man really seems to love an care for her, so she does what her heart says to do.
This is a story about the classes, old family traditions, and culture. It was refreshing to read a book that was no where near cliche, and outside the western way of seeing relationships. I loved Ash's sadness, and Renu's spunk. I enjoyed Bijay's jealousy, and David's anger.
In the end I loved that Bijay's parents saw the error of their ways.
Good story, just wish it was a bit longer. Thank you for the great read.
