The Love Stories We Need in our Lives


Love’s Labor by Andy Paula

The Blurb
Piali Roy has run away from home and the two stubborn men who love her. One is her beloved Baba; a rigid traditionalist, he refuses to accept anyone from outside her caste and community. And then there is Sathya, the unsuitable outsider. He loves her truly, madly, deeply and has even called off his marriage for her sake. Neither man will budge, and the small town of Jampot, where everyone knows everything, is not big enough for the two of them.
Away from their unreasonable demands, Piali strives to find peace in the mountains. But within six months, her lover tracks her down. Once again, she betrays the one by trusting the other.
Will her labor in the name of love be in vain, or will love transcend all differences?Review

Imagine the lonesome hills standing in the middle of the valley all alone, except for two lovers who glide among the shadows of the trees with ethereal songs on their lips. Remember the guitar-playing flirt that used to play outside the college canteen to impress his girl. Romance is often not in the large gestures or the over-arching love stories. love in it’s most natural form is something that that exists everywhere.
This book traces a love story that is not extraordinary. There aren’t any huge alpha heroes, there aren’t huge plots that mix with each other. This book celebrates human emotions. Now, I may be wrong, but, this is the kind of love story we all need in our lives. Human emotions are the most important factors in love stories, something that is quite easily forgotten in the race for wanting have the most splendid language, or the best characters. Andy Paula brings together human emotions with strong characters and she does an excellent job at it.
The Indian values and the almost oppressive society is also brought out very well, however, that does not tax the romance in the story itself. The story makes for a wonderful read and a far more wonderful conversation starter.
We need more authors like Andy Paula now, and I hope that she will keep writing.
