Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake is a heartwarming love story about a plain Jane sort of woman, whose life is suddenly turned upside down, only to be reordered once more with the help of a good friend.
Summary Of The Book
Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake features Nisha as the protagonist. She is portrayed by Shenoy as a woman who feels plain, imperfect, and plump, and as a woman in whom no male would take interest in.
Life throws a loop one day when she loses her job, which she valued more than anything else in her life. And just as she relinquishes all hope, fate sends Nisha a life saver in the form of Samir Sharma. Rich, Ivy-league educated, and dashing, fate really smiled at Nisha, as soon afterwards the pair head to the marriage altar.
Alas, the mundaneness of domestic life throws a new wrench into Nisha’s happy life. Slowly but surely, her relationship with Samir begins to change, and even more so when two children come into the picture. After eight years of marital bliss and the security that comes with marriage, Samir’s announcement comes crashing down on Nisha and her world. Samir reveals that he wants to leave Nisha for another woman, a younger one at that.
After recovering from the shock, Nisha struggles to gather herself together and leaves with her children. It is when her friend Akash enters the picture, that the plot of Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake changes to a positive tone. As Nisha regains her self confidence and pieces together the shattered remains of her life, her friendship with Akash deepens. But Nisha’s past never fails to haunt her nor does she feel it appropriate to burden the young Akash with her problems.
Tea For Two And A Piece Of Cake was published in 2012 by Random House India. It was in the top five bestsellers list in India for 2012.
