Hello there fellow Bookworms! One thing I love about reading is how we can walk miles in different shoes… we set ourselves on journeys and adventures without ever leaving the safety of our home… And just like that, we can laugh, cry, fall in love, fight.. safe in the knowledge that once we close the book we’ll be fine..
But there are times when those stories don’t leave you entirely, they stay with you because of the powerful emotions behind them… and this book I’m reviewing today is one of those…
NAUSPICIOUS by R.L.K. Eastabrooks
This isn’t an easy read, and at the same time it is. Learning about different cultures, ways of life, traditions and whether they seem archaic and completely against what we believe is sane; it’s the beauty of reading.
Through this book we travel to India, the setting and feel of it. It’s amazingly well done.. it’s almost as if you could smell the spices and hear the boisterous sounds of the bazaar… However, we can also experience the hardships and choke hold that traditions can put on a person.
This is a journey of self discovery, of losing the ability to trust and learning to do so again in spite of the hurt it might cause; of finding the strength within you and the resilience to strive for what you want.
it’s beautifully told.. with the lives of our two main characters differing and colliding with each other perfectly..
As I said, it’s not an easy read for all the message it carries and for the array of emotions it will touch on the reader, regardless of background..
A truly amazing read.
