Book Review : The Hidden Letters... By Purba Chakraborty


The Blurb and The Book:
''The Hidden Letters...'' is a story of Anaya Chatterjee, a best selling author who discover writing is a medicine to her soul. She has a loving doctor husband who dots on her and her teenager daughter idolizes her as the world's best mother.She has a perfect well settled and a happy family.Despite of all these she lack inner peace. She is horrified by the nightmares of 'sins' she had committed in the past. Those ''Hidden Letters'' kept locked in her cupboard written by her cousin, Varsha long back. Presently a patient at a mental asylum in Kolkata. 

A secret kept since long haunts her to an extent that she find it so hard to hold anymore knowing well that the disclosure of secret might take away all her happiness and respect that she has gained over the years as a wife and a mother. Her husband and daughter might leave her and never ever forgive for her cruel act.She is determined as she finds a bit of humanity is still left in her.

 Will she be able be to justify the reason behind her deeds? Will she be able to forgive herself for the act she committed in the chase of her happiness? Will she be able to live at peace? and a lot of such questions continue...

My Views: The suspense begin right from the third chapter 'A Silent Storm'  and the same continues till the end. Once I started reading it I totally got engrossed into the story and kept it down after the four hours of reading until it was end. Purba has done a great job with all the characters and depicting their emotions. Crunch twists and turns will keep you glued to it. The story is moving and at no point I find it boring. At a first glance I didn't like its cover page but after completing the book I realized how perfect it goes with the story. In fact I count it as the best book I read this year. A must read, I would say.
