I genuinely fell in love with this book because I came across one of my most unforgettable fictional crush ever. Hey, Adih, please be there as you are. I simply loved the easy, simple language . The characters are developed okay. Somewhere I cannot help feeling how fictional it gets in between when the parents as well as everyone can just accept a totally different personality as someone who is no longer there. It seems a little farfetch. But I totally loved most of the characters except for the ...more

The writing style of the author is impressive.
The cover is attractive and the title of the book is relevant to the story.
The story began at a perfect pace, slowed down just a bit and then picked up speed again.
The author has done justice to all the characters of the Novel (each mentioned in the blurb of the book); she's described a scene well, dealt with the emotions of the characters beautifully. The story flow is good; slightly slow for a few chapters as mentioned before but for the rest of t

I am not a fan of romance novels, I am not a fan of love stories but "You came like Hope" somehow managed to get through to me.
The story is woven wonderfully with a female protagonist who has a twin sister who dies in the beginning, That is enough to get you thinking of what next. There are a few places where I stopped and marveled at the way the novel goes, there are twists that are expected to happen, as a reader you are wishing for it and the plot delivers it.

A beautiful springtime read~ It will make you feel the beauty of spring after the cold winter

"You came like hope" starts on a very interesting note where Peehu, one of the protagonists of the book is shocked to see her parents mourn her death. From the very first chapter, the author grabbed my interest in the book.

This book is not a regular love story. It tells the story of two beautiful yet flawed characters: Peehu and Adih. Both of them have been treated unfairly by the society and have been

Author Jyoti Arora's book 'You Came Like Hope' is a smart package of hope delivered to your doorstep and thereby to your hand. It plants the seeds of hope in the reader's mind. The book begins with an ending - of life. But this ending is juxtaposed later with glorious revelations of hope. The storyline is interesting.
The book is a must read for those feeling lowly or depressed.

The 3rd offering from the impressive ‘Lemon Girl’ author landed in my lap. I devoured it in one night.

Pros: a] The premise has been rarely, if at all, handled by a female author. It will definitely perk up the drooping male morale, while also serving as a gentle reminder to women that power misuse is a crime, irrespective of gender.
b] Good opening hook. It intrigues the reader and reels them into the story.
c] The underlying theme - about 2 negatives merging to create a positive- is heartwarmi

Overall I enjoyed this book. The alternating chapters took a little to catch onto, and that drew away for the first 1/3 of the story, I wanted to skip them because they confused me, but these things usually explain themselves eventually so I pushed through, and ended up enjoying the glimpse into Adhi’s past. I agree that it could be beneficial to have it be written in third person. I would have like to hear more in detail of Peehu’s transition into her sister’s role. I liked the storyline, of on ...more

My Rating: precisely 3.4 stars.

In you came like hope, Jyoti has tried to show a different side of domestic abuse, not the usual kind of women abused. The underlying plot of this seemingly simple love story is the tale of a married man, a supposedly good man, really very good enough to not understand the evil designs of a woman. This woman is a spoilt child knowing not what she really wants, and ends up marrying the good man w

It's been some time since I read a romance. This book is a cool breeze of subtle romance. This is the story of Peehu, who thinks herself as an unlucky girl. Peehu overcomes many failures in different stages of her life but still feels depressed as she is not smart, lucky and good looking like her twin sister Pakhi. But, everything changes on one day when Pakhi dies and Peehu replaces her sister's place. However, she realizes, being herself is more rewarding than pretending like her sister. The s ...more

'You Came Like Hope' by Jyoti Arora is romantic fiction..with a emotional touch to it! It's a love story between Adih, a charming person with a daughter suffering from Thalassemia and having a rumoured past...and on the other hand there is Peehu, a self acclaimed unlucky twin sister of dead Pakhi. The story revolves how in spite of all the odds and rumours Peehu falls in love with the broken Adih...and how he is reluctant towards it! Will they meet rather all the odds?? Or will

The story revolves around Peehu, Pakhi, Adih, Uday, and Mani. Pakhi and Peehu though both are twin sisters are two different personalities. Pakhi a confident and charming girl who receives success every mile where else, Peehu who has bad luck, and is a complete opposite of Pakhi. She always wishes to be like Pakhi, and god approved her wish. What will happen next? was the question that remained in my mind.

The plot is simple and straightforward. Adih and Peehu find themselves in each others lives. A series of events have led them to where they are today, but each individual has some hurdles to overcome for themselves before they can commit to the other. It is a journey that they have to take together and yet separately at the same time in order to be able to let go of their pasts to embrace a future together.

Character Development:
I liked the characters of Adih and Peehu. Uday really irked me.

The story has been beautifully narrated. It takes along a line of unintentional and indirect partiality faced by some kids in their families where they are compares to their siblings and how it affects them in their life and ideologies. Two stories are interwoven seamlessly. It also shows that a woman has the capability to make as well as break a house through the character of Pooja. It also shows how a wrong accusation can destroy a whole family. Overall the story is worth a read and is in easy ...more

At a glance, You Came Like Hope by Jyoti Arora is the love story between Peehu and Adih. As the protagonists, both their characters are well developed through their past and present stories. The both have some experiences in their pasts that stops them from taking a chance with each other. While the focus remains on how they work through their personal issues, we also learn about a few people in their lives and their struggles.

Jyoti Arora’s You came like Hope is about the dichotomy of love and identity, unpeeling the layers in the female character and explores to depth the contrasts and similarities at the same time. The female character is the lead in a narrative where she wears her vulnerability on her sleeve unabashedly in a story that never ceases to surprise the reader in every sequence. It unfolds like the mystery similar to the potboilers that we don’t get to see on screen anymore. In short, ‘You came like Hope ...more

You came like hope is an intense, emotional rollercoaster ride. This is a love story of two sensitive people .I will not say you must read this book for I found this novel very rewarding to my soul but I will say if you read it you will learn something about how misfortunes can make people life hell. I dedicate this review to all those innocent souls who consider themselves as unlcuky. I got myself immersed in the characters that felt so real.

Everyone has their own journey, their own share of problems. Yet, we are the ones who judge others by their choices without knowing their side of the story. I'm glad that the author brought out this beautifully in the form of a story.
