The book tells the story of three extremely interesting characters as their lives cross in surprising ways. Rukmani is fierce and assertive. She is completely opposite of her elder sister Mrinalini in nature. Mrinalini is meek and cannot even think of defying their mother Neelam. And on the other hand, Rukmani constantly has a tiff with her mother.
The story is divided into three parts. The first part is about Mrinalini's life. She marries Surya according to her mother's wishes and struggles to cope up with her life.
In the second part, we are introduced to the character of Ayaan. When Rukmani and Ayaan meet in the magical city of Paris, they immediately connect with each other.
We witness some mind-boggling turn of events which were completely unpredictable in the third part.
You have to read the book to know how the three lives intersect and what are the turn of events that occur in their lives.
The author has done a commendable job in addressing a serious global issue in this book. All the characters are well portrayed, unique and seem utterly real. This novel is absolutely gorgeous and written in simple and lucid language. The plot is constructed and narrated beautifully. It is indeed deeply touching and an unforgettable story.
Overall, I totally loved this book. For me, it was a great and refreshing read.
Tides Don't Cross is a perfect read for all. Definitely recommended!
The book is divided into three parts. It has a story of Meera, Rukmani and the third part is about both of them. Firstly I loved the title and the cover of the book. It's super Interesting and attractive. The plot of the story is different and interesting. The narration is crisp and engaging. The storyline is unique with lots of twists and turns. One can relate to the story from the very first page.
The pace of the story is a bit slow. the flow of the story is good. The characters that the author developed are appealing and have a strong personality. I loved Rukmani's character the most. The chemistry between Rukmani and Ayaan was wonderful. each character is developed in a brilliant way.
Love, aggression, hate, passion and many other emotions are expressed by the author in a wonderful way. One can emotionally connect to the story and the characters. There's a lot of drama in the story and is like a complete Bollywood movie. The dialogues, Fun, humour, aggression makes the story more interesting.
Overall, It's a wonderful story with a unique plot, strong narration and simple language.

While Rukamani lives her life in her own rules on the other hand Mrinalini tries to make herself use to be with everyone in her surrounding. Mrinalini has to marry Surya before she knew her a little . After 6 years of their marriage the death of Surya shook the life of Mrinalini and their son Rohan . They then moved to new place where they met a new person . This new person, Ayaan was deeply connected with Rukamani . Ayaan Khan is from a well known rich family of Jaipur. He wass a swimmer . After falling in love with Rukamani in Paris they both met in America again . Ayaan Khan , as the name suggest he belonged to Muslim family ,faced humiliation at the airport . Also Mrinalini was trying to make Rukamani understand that he wasn't good for him . Two religions . Two different cultures . All these thoughts poisoned Rukamani's mind . It causes separation of 3years of them .
1. If you are someone who loves beautiful cover , you will definately love the book at first sight .
2. This is not a story of Romance. Author has touched every little aspects of life and even a big global issue which has given this book a great value .
3. Author has done really a great effort to build each character. Every character is unique in their own way.
4. The use of emotions and vocabulary will blow your mind .
5. Most important and the best part is the plot . The author has brilliantly concreted the plot that it is unputdownable .
There is no doubt that Simar Malhotra is an awesome storyteller . I will suggest to read this book .
It's definately a 5/5 read
