Today, in an all new session of THE READING ROOM, we are going to
review ‘Tea for two and a piece of cake’ by Preeti Shenoy
• Book Description
Have you ever been mistreated in your life and found yourself having
no clue as to what next? Have you loved someone more than your life
and felt ditched and lost? This is a book that unfolds such a story of
a woman who went through hardships in life as the one who held her
hand, left her all alone. The book deals with how she copes up with
the dilemma and decides to move on. Once if she found love, the second
time love finds her. A page turner this is!
• My View
This story is perhaps a wakeup call to all husbands and wives who face
hard times in their lives. Marital relationships are not always beds
of roses, but it all lies in how you take the person. No person is
perfect, and it’s these imperfections that make the life synced to
perfection. Preeti Shenoy has beautifully portrayed how a woman can
still be herself, even after she is left with literally nothing to
expect from life.
This is a story of Nisha, who, one fine day finds that her world is
totally upside down when her husband walks out of her life with
another woman, leaving her and their two kids behind. Nisha is
completely broken and has no clue how to take life forward. At that
point, she doesn’t realise that Samir’s leaving her is going to make
her realise her strength.
The rest of the story deals with the hardships she face to keep life
going smooth for her and the children. She also meets an old friend
who turns to be her greatest supporter in the later phases.
A gripping story, a story where at many points you would wonder how
you would handle such a situation, had it been you.
Life takes you through tough phases, but true love never fails to
reach you, is what the story talks about. Be positive, for nothing
else matters when you’re not yet ready to quit.
My rating: 4/5
