About the Book
WORDS are mightier than anything else in this world. Sometimes they serve as liaisons between two distinct hearts, and sometimes they shatter two people irreparably apart. But when they are woven into promises and hopes, they give rise to something that lasts forever. They change lives.
I had almost lost myself, when she brought me back to life - with her promises. She was dying with a dreadful tumour, but she had the authority to pull those last strings that brought me back to her. She was gradually dying, and every night before going to sleep - she would take a portion of my heart, my soul and my words. She would take a promise from me every night that made me who I'm today. She gave me a new life.
One of those promises was to compile this novel that took me to an eventful journey in which I discovered several people, like me, who too were keeping her promises.
What were those amusing, surprising and horrendous promises that they all kept?
Who else other than I were bound to her promises?
Would she be able to redefine love and sacrifice with her plans?
Can grief completely redefine who you are? Can a broken heart be healed?
Can you fall in love with the same person all over again?
Can you live and die, both at the same time?
Be a part of my story, about a girl, who - through her promises, changed the lives of the people she loved, including mine.
This is my journey. This is the window of my past, and the view to my future. It is yours now!

“Keeping The Promises” is a poignant tale of sacrifices, unconditional love and togetherness. It is about a girl who on her death bed,gave a new life to the people she loves. It is about a boy who stood by his love during the time she was wretched and tormented by a life threatening disease. It is about the promises that the boy gave her in the last eleven days of her life. It is about the love-filled togetherness that these two souls shared when they knew that they had limited time to be with each other. From cooking for his love to writing their story and narrating it to her every night, the boy left no stone unturned to fill his love’s life with countless joys. In the similar manner, the girl demanded for every such promise from her love that helped him to be a better, successful and a happy human being after her death. Since this is a real story moulded into fiction, it will enthral readers and make them believe in true love. M is just like an angel in Dhruv’s life and readers will love all the moments between M and Dhruv. The characters of Ansh, Angie and Nirali are very endearing. The epilogue is the most surprising element of the book and the last letter of M moved me to the verge of tears. This book has all the elements and emotions of a beautiful love story. The only flaw that I managed to find was poor editing. There are quite a few spelling and punctuation errors which could have been avoided, if the editor had given a little more effort. Language and vocabulary is quite impressive for a debut author and if the editing would have been better, the book would have been really flawless. All the people who are in love and who believes in love should really read this book. It is a sparkling little gem.
"Keeping the Promises- An amazing and a beautiful read.loved it from the start to the end. it takes you on a journey and a plethora of emotions. Its surreal.Amazing to see how love can change the course of your life.My heart just poured out as I read the last few pages of the book. Such a tiny book to stir such great emotions in me.
