For the Sake of Love
I really like Rini. She is kind, and someone who can see the good in everything. I am sure if one were to discuss Osama bin Laden with Rini, she would be able to come up with some really good things about him, too!
We searched for Shimla on the Internet, and saw some really amazing pictures. By the end of our lunch, I have to say, I was looking forward to visiting the place.
The next day, I reported to Anita’s office. Bobby was already there and they were both waiting for me. I settled into one of the vacant recliners.
Anita handed me a yellow file and said, ‘Twisha, you are the lead in this assignment; you need to take care of everything!’
‘And of me, too,’ Bobby whispered into my ears and winked conspiratorially. I pointedly ignored her.
‘This file has your air tickets, the address of the apartment you’ll be staying in, the receipt of the advance payment of a month’s rent, your official papers, a research booklet, the list of titles on which you need to work, and some important and hopefully useful contacts.’
I immediately opened the file to check the papers. ‘You can inspect this file later. You’ll have a lot of time for that,’ Anita stopped me.
Then she took out a credit card and handed it over to me. ‘This is yours. You can pay for your food, transportation, and other expenses with this. Don’t waste money on shopping and clubbing,’ winked Anita as she continued,
‘but yeah, a little bit of everything is allowed as this is a month-long assignment and you will also need to enjoy yourselves. Alright?’
Bobby and I, both, replied ‘Yes!’ in unison.
‘Oh, and another thing, you need to send a report in every two days. Don’t forget that. It is very, very important,’ said Anita as she stuck a pen into the messy hair piled on her head in a bun.
We nodded our agreement as we smiled. I had finally come to terms with spending a month in Shimla with Bobby as my partner. Now that all the documents were in place and I had a credit card with no limits in my hand, I felt much better about the prospect.
‘Anything else?’ Anita asked in a bossy tone. ‘No,’ I replied.
‘Okay then, off you go! You girls are on an official trip for an assignment from today. Go and get ready. Be in touch, and enjoy!’ said Anita.
We both shook hands with Anita one by one, and left her cabin. It was time to bid adieu to all our colleagues who we wouldn’t be seeing for the next month.
By now, only one thing was flashing inside my head. I was going to Shimla! And I was finally feeling happy about it. It was going to be a break from routine, a kind of vacation. I wouldn’t even have to get up at 9 and take those long walks to office!
As for Bobby, well, I will be the boss on this trip, after all! She would have to follow all my instructions. Yes, All My Instructions! I am wicked, I know. But at the back of my mind were Rini’s words. I had to give Bobby a chance. Maybe Rini was right and it was just in my head. I hated it when someone else was right, but nothing could be done. Bobby and I had to live together for a month. I had to find a way to get along with her somehow.
Bring it on. I was ready!

Will these opposites attract ?
Will twisha finally fall in love ?
Grab this book to know what destiny hold for her.
The cover of the book is good but could have been better . The title is good and the blurb is also crisp . The story doesn't has any ups and downs and flows smoothly from beginning to end . Though a simple one, the narration of the author is powerful enough to keep you hooked till the end .
The characterisation is the heart of the story . The engaging characters will make you finish the book at one go . The language is lucid . Since there were no twists and turns, I found the story very predictable at many places. I liked the letters in the story which will make you fall for them instantly.
For the sake of love is perfect for someone looking for a simple and light read.
Overall a simple and sweet story.

The title of the book 'For the sake of love' gives the reader a hint that it is going to be a love story.
Book Cover :
The book cover is simple yet colorful. The image of a happy couple with some sweet decor around gives a soothing feeling.
The story is a very nice piece of fiction with fantasy love story attached to it. A young woman who is very much passionate about her profession and career rather than her own personal life, happens to meet a forgotten love story in the form of old diary and letters of someone she never knew.
Some kind of pushing force asks her to complete the incomplete love story found in those letters and she sets out for a journey with her best friend. The travel both the characters have till the end is the main plot. Will she be successful in completing the love story? is what the book is about. The author has succeeded in engaging the readers with an interesting plot.
The characters are plotted and given ample importance at perfect places.
The narration is very good and interesting.
Language and Vocabulary:
Usage of simple language and grammar is a notable point.
My Final Verdict—.
A onetime light read to enjoy a fantasy love story.

I personally rate the book 4 out of 5
The old-world charm of love letters, written during a time when the main form of communication was by mail and set in picturesque Shimla, is palpable. Mishra has successfully presented the sharp contrast in the (Internet and SMS lingo-filled) language we use today and the softer, flowing, lyrical language that people used decades ago. I’d say that the letters were a treat to read and helped the love story unfold vividly.
The narrative is rich with descriptions—from clothes and food to houses and personalities. It was easy to picture each character and each location in the mind’s eye. However, it was a little hard to stomach the sudden transformation of Alex from “rich, spoilt boy” to “caring, responsible man” overnight. Perhaps it would have been believable if some more time had elapsed between the incident at the orchard and the reconciliation.
Although Bobby (Twisha, the protagonist’s co-worker) is described as an irritating girl who did not know how to respect boundaries, it seemed that Twisha was snobbish and thought no end of herself without having done anything special to deserve such a pedestal. The reader is supposed to accept Twisha as a successful, no-nonsense woman, but she really comes off as a person with a swollen head. She definitely meets her match in Alex when it comes to treating people dismissively.
The narrative begins to drag a bit when Chris repeatedly refuses to entertain queries about Jasmine. When the reason for his refusal is revealed, it doesn’t seem convincing enough to explain his previous behavior.
Notwithstanding these minor flaws, “For the Sake of Love” was a beautiful overnight read that left me with a bittersweet feeling. I wanted to read the book again and change the conclusion to give myself closure!
