My view about the novel- The Second Choice

The Second Choice: Beautifully crafted story

This book is beautifully written and the story which keeps the reader emotionally rooted to the story of two people coming together to start a new life for reasons of their daughters happiness is very compelling.

A complex emotional tale, narrated in simple words

I really liked the manner in which the author, Lakshmi Menon dealt with the complexities of a second marriage.

A simple story well told

The Second Choice is a drama based on a Second marriage between a divorced man and a widow. They each have a daughter. I found myself flipping through the pages as the story progresses. It's simple yet the story is awesome. As the protagonist, Pavithra, struggles thru all the highs and lows of her conveniently arranged marriage, the reader will find that there's so much more to look forward to this seemingly simple story.

My take on "The Second Choice"

The book stands apart, not only in its simplicity but in the manner it was presented – predictable and yet with a lesson or two if a reader needs to carry home as a key takeaway.

Soumya's character, subtle throughout and yet left a lasting impact.

Greatly written..

"The Second Choice" is a gripping tale of an unusual family. Once you start reading you don't
want to keep it down until you reach the end. Even after finishing the novel the characters
will leave within you for many days. A brilliant work from a great writer!
