Book Review: Hide and Seek

Author: Supriya Parulekar

Is love enough to keep up the facade of marriage from breaking down? What about adjustments, compromises, resilience and second chances? Are they important?

The story begins when Radhika sees those texts on her globetrotting husband Abhishek’s phone and the doors to his clandestine rendezvous are opened. To her dismay, she is faced head-on with betrayal, and lies and is completely broken from within. She confides with her closest friend M and her comatose mother. She tries to be strong for her daughter Zoe.

However, as she contemplates her steps, she is acquainted with Omar Rajput, a football coach, and a widower, by chance. He understands her angst without her voicing it out and she feels drawn toward him.

Not the one to give up easily, Radhika decides to give her husband another chance only to find herself flat on her face.

What would she do now? would she continue the farce of her marriage, give in to her feelings for Omar, or take another option, not in the kitty?

The author has spun the tale around interpersonal relationships, eloquently tackling desires and fantasies. She doesn’t play the blame game but tactfully brings out POV of the characters in their own space. The reader can’t help but think….
