17 January 2017
Child abuse is one of the most common types of abuse all over the world. Often such kid’s complain and pleas are ignored by their parents and guardians thinking that they are cooking up stories, thus making such kids suffer in silence. Result, it affects them so much that it breaks their confidence and in some cases their psyche is damaged beyond repair. In most of the cases children are abused by someone close and known to them. It's either a family member or someone known to family and child, whom usually no one suspects or doubts, and therefore they escape from being caught and/or punished for their misdeeds.
M V Kasi, in her book Soulless has dealt with this issue in a very brilliant manner.
What happens when a nine-year girl, who has lost her parents at such a young age, is subjected to physical abuse for one year by a person whom she trusts and thinks to be a good person???
The abuse continues till a Good Samaritan rescues her by staging her false death and tucks her safely in an orphanage. Luckily she is adopted by a lady and is flown to Boston.
But what affect did the abuse have on her? Her soul is damaged and her memory blocks the instances of those dreadful things which she had to go through. The innocent girl has turned into a reckless girl hell-bent on wrecking her life with her wayward ways; thus bringing disappointment for her adopted mother.
But does Sia succeed in wrecking her life or she is successfully takes revenge from people responsible for her state??
Awesome story, liked the way the author has weaved the plot from past to present. Use of simple language, not too many characters are introduced or added. The manner in which Sia’s past is revealed to the reader is really commendable. Can’t wait to read what happens next in Ajay’s and Sia’s life in Ruthless. Does she get successful in avenging revenge from her uncle or she herself becomes an victim, again?
Hats off to the author for writing on such sensitive issue of child abuse. The manner in which Sia’s abuse turned her into what she became is well described. Must read if you like romance, little bit of mystery and suspense.
