BOOK REVIEW:The Rose Bush by Priyanka Lal


A love story of a young, carefree girl who finds the man she craves. Before their love could fully blossom trying times pour over them taking away the fragrance. Where do these trials and tribulations lead her? The story has a strong narrative which is descriptive and creative simultaneously. It highlights very genuine state of the protagonist's mind and unfolds some important but less talked about moments in a relationship. Throughout, it carries an air of suspense... fragrant like a Rose Bush. One must not miss this beautiful modern classic. 

I bought this book as an ebook version (kindle) .The books contains many pages & it was difficult to finish reading the whole.It too me quite long around 3-4 weeks.I read it in bits & parts & enjoyed reading it.
The story revolves around the protagonist Kadambari.The jouney of her life & her love story.I like the romance part.
Its touchy..i can feel the emotions.

The end part of the book is the main highlight of the story. 
The life cycle of the flower needed it to wither awa, just as life brings along sufferings, but the bush was always a 'rose bush'.Nothing could take away its identity.When the flower died it stay at the foot of the bush.It detached itself from the bush .
That was life. Life of people in love.There is never an end of road.There was always a turn.

The story is beautiful, but could be reduced to some extent.I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Wish to read more from the author.
