    Poignant and engaging! Must read!

    Reading the book “The Unwanted” has been an emotional journey through the lives of people struggling with the vagaries of life. The story catches your attention right from the beginning, and runs a smooth course throughout. It is well-paced and never feels boring. The characters are developed nicely, and makes us feel relatable and connected, acting as mirrors to our deepest emotions. The language is lucid and contains local flavours, making it more endearing. The book doesn’t take sides, but shows people as they are – imperfect, driven by emotions, and constantly fighting inner demons. The addition of a meet cute love story feels refreshing amidst an otherwise heart-rendering narrative. The book is reflective of the lives of numerous Indian women who go through similar situations, making sacrifices throughout their lives. Such stories need to be told, and I am glad to have read this book. Kudos to the author for writing such a wonderful story! Highly recommended!!!
