My View:

A very interesting and different story, compared to current love stories. The plot is excellent and equal importance has been given to each and every character; also language is simple and easy to understand. The title of the book The Hidden Letters, itself creates good suspense for the readers. The blurb is written very efficiently; so after reading the blurb one cannot put the book down until completing the entire novel.    
The novel is about woman’s courage
 that fights with her past to save her future, for a mother whose love for children is more important where she can compromise her love for husband. Love makes one blind, so this is the perfect example of first true love, and also love of parents for their children is one of the strong side of the novel. Through the words readers can feel the pain suffered by the protagonist. Each and every character’s emotion and dilemma has been perfectly crafted by the author.  
This book is far much conceptual and worth reading. The story is consistently good and doesn’t allow the reader to leave at any point oft time. Also it shows reflection of today’s strong women. This novel is a good example for today’s generation who dream for the perfect life partner but suffers after a marriage.   


She is a successful author, a loving wife and the world’s best mom. Her doctor husband dotes on her, her teenage daughter idolizes her and her readers yearn for her writing. Shouldn’t all that respect and love make her happy?
Yet, she is devoid of inner peace. In the wee hours of the night, her slumber is disturbed by horrifying nightmares. All her harmony is abducted and lost amidst the bunch of hidden letters kept in her cupboard. Those letters were written long back by her cousin, presently a patient at a mental asylum in Kolkata.

Haunted by her inner demons and tired by the long-time secrecy, she decides to put end to her misery by surrendering to her husband and daughter, The Hidden Letters….

Will she lose her husband’s love and daughter’s respect? Can she forgive herself for her own selfishness which rendered her cousin’s fate malignant?
