      Description

      The Helpline tells the contemporary story of a suicidal man, trying to find help through a telephonic helpline.

      Summary of the Book

      Rachel works at a suicide helpline, and it is her job to help people move on with their lives and come out of depression. So when she gets a call from Samir, who feels suicide is the only answer to how he feels after facing failure at every step in life. Rachel takes it upon her to teach him that even though there is darkness everywhere, there is still a ray of hope, a small source of light that can shine in anyone's life. However, as Samir begins to question, who is Rachel, and what exactly is the hotline? Samir's own identity is a question in this novel as it addresses not love but the pangs of failed love and coping with them.
