really liked it

As far as my reading is concerned, the rule is simple. I don’t like romances and I don’t read romances. I read my first Mills and Boon during my college years. Halfway through, I realized I could just not read any further. Mushy romances are not my genre. This was why I read and reread the blurb of ‘A Forgotten Affair’ by Kanchana Banerjee a dozen times before picking up the book. It didn’t seem like other romance novels and… it was not!

Sagarika is not a heroine that is looking for her knight in shining armor. In spite of all her troubles, she has the capacity to stand up for herself, face her troubles and live her life. At every twist and turn, Kanchana has you praying and rooting for Sagarika.

The book is well-written and the distinct voice of each character stands out. Rishab’s anger and arrogance, Amrita’s care and concern, Deepa’s duplicitous dishonesty, Sagarika’s mother’s helplessness—everything pulls you into the story refusing to let go. You keep turning the pages till the final climax has you nodding your head in approval.

A Forgotten Affair will be a book you wouldn’t be able to forget.
