Book Review: A Break in Love

Author: Rrashima Swaarup Verma

This light romantic story is set in fast-paced contemporary urban India. The couple Karan and Lisa are as different as chalk and cheese. While Karan is in a conservative kind of a workplace prim with his pin-stripe suits and no-nonsense vibes in his competitive corporate world, Lisa hobnobs with the whos who of the fashion industry. They seem to be a perfect couple, married for five years after a whirlwind courtship. However, the reality is a far cry from this perfection.

The stress of surviving in a cut-throat environment demanding every ounce of their sanity the couple find themselves drifting apart. When it appears things have hit rock bottom, a sudden plan is made in a last ditch effort to save their marriage. They decide to have a ‘break in love’

Will this work in their favour?

The author had interestingly woven the interpersonal relationship of a modern day couple who have everything going for them yet they falter. The story shows how a brief separation at times can help rekindle the flickering embers of a relationship.

A pleasant read!
