About the Book:

Abhi has no reasons to complain – he lives in the Land of the Dreams, the United States of America. He is working in a large retail conglomerate and has the trust and respect of his management. He is being offered the opportunity to set up India operations for the company. His best friend from IIT is his colleague. He is married to the girl he loves. And he has an angel for a daughter.

And yet, he suddenly finds his life spiraling down. His wife Anjali suspects him of having an affair with his bestie, Deepali, who is undergoing marital problems. And she does not like Abhi’s father Sundaram dedicating his life to an unrelated person Vasudevan – a man whom even Abhi loves like a father.

Abhi is also burdened by a request – Vasu’s last wish that Sundaram hopes Abhi will be able to fulfill. Will Abhi be able to fulfill it? Will Anjali understand and accept him? Will Deepali find happiness? Will there be a drizzle in the desert, will life bring back the lost happiness.

Writing & Narration:

This story contains a massive amount of emotions; hence, the narration seems to be good enough. The author has managed to keep a balance between every emotion. However, the writing part could have been a bit better.

Title & Cover:

The cover and title both match well with the story.


  • Good characterization
  • Touching presentation


Writing could have been a bit better.

My Verdict:

This book is a combination of different emotions, including love, sorrow, hatred, betrayal, guilt, and a lot of helping hand. It’s a good roller-coaster ride of a book with happy beginnings, dreadful middle, and ending you’d have to find out. Read it and know more.
