I Shall Always Love You is a thrilling tale of love that never dies, treasures that lay buried, and truths that go deeper than the seas.
The novel is a candy floss romance, which can be enjoyed until the end. The story is engrossing, I loved the way the author connected the dots across past lives. The beauty of Khajuraho is further enhanced, with the mingling of the love story between the long lost soul mates. I was left bit disappointed when the author towards the end tried to bring the thrill element. The story highlights the fact that whatever you have learned in the past lives, stay with you. I enjoyed reading the novel immensely.
Shiv is a celebrated sculptor and also heir to a flourishing business empire. All was going well for Shiv, till the time he met the mysterious woman, he was so captivated by her, that he decides to make a sculptor dedicated to her. During the unveiling of his exhibition, one of the famous critics told him, that the sculptor is a copy of Khajuraho figurine.
Deeply hurt and humiliated Shiv embark on a journey, where he uncovers some shocking facts and truths. More than those truths, he got a peep in his past life.
In this birth he is not vulnerable, he has the power to change the sequence of events. All he needs is clarity of vision and a will of steel.
I will definitely recommend this book, it is a journey worth undertaking.
