At The Threshold Of Love by Namita Sonthalia | Book Review


Summary:

They fell in love – unknown that it had happened to them! They faced the ordeals of their lives with vigor and charm. They hurt when reality pricked their hearts – all the while, unknown of each other’s existence. But the passion that lay veiled within their hearts – would that be enough to re-write their future together?

Ahaana Agarwal, living in Bangalore, India, runs an event management company, The Threshold of Love, with partner and childhood friend Ansh. Enveloped in the bliss of creating beautiful marriages and celebrating love in the lives of her clients, she is unknown to the emotion herself. But only until business tycoon Ronit Malhotra arrives at her doorstep.

At first sight, she experiences what weak knees are and is yet unable to fathom the courage to accept that it could be love! The dream and confused rattle of the heart dwindles into disappointment when Ronit approaches her to get his wedding planned.

As fate may have it, Ronit too cannot stay oblivious to Ahaana's charm and charismatic magnetism. When things spiral out of control, the fun-loving and handsome stranger Soham Sehgal meets Ahaana at her cousin’s wedding. While destiny decides to get them married, will true love and passion make way into the inevitable and re-do what fate had already carved?

The complications and the pain that love brings are inevitable, yet the charm and grandeur of the satisfaction of being loved is incomparable. ‘At The Threshold of Love’ creates those emotions and makes you live it through, until the very last page. Once you take it into your hands, be prepared for it ‘melts your heart – one breath at a time!’

The narration style of the author is fresh easy to read though at some places I found it to be a bit dragging. The characters were well developed and interesting. I found the relationships between the characters were well developed and intriguing. The language isn’t the most creative but is not supposed to be. It is distinct enough that it does not share the same side-winding mannerisms of legitimate conversation. Just the right amount of twists in the plot to keep you guessing. The pacing is just right and as the back stories are filled in, the novel moves at a nice, always interesting pace.

 The overall quality of the writing, it helped in making it interesting and fluent. I'd be looking forward to read more from the author in future.
