Many a times while reading the book I felt tears in my eyes and throat completely chocked with emotions. Even after I finished reading, I was haunted by the book and its characters for several days, wondering how an incidence can completely offtrack one’s destiny.
I just loved what one of its characters says “The world was full of broken people, and all the hospitals, institutions and jails could never mend their fractured hearts, wounded minds and trampled spirits.” That sentence made me think!
