The 22nd October was a very special day, as it was the day I started this book and discovered a fellow book reviewer and blogger was also a very talented writer with a gift for creating an emotional story in such a beautiful way.
The Fragile Thread of Hope is a beautifully descriptive and atmospheric character led story about family, love, loss, grief, regret, loneliness and hope.
This story put me through so many human emotions. I really felt for the characters and experienced a deep empathy for their sadness and pain. I felt frustrated by the injustice of certain situations, heart-broken by their despair and loneliness, and happiness when their lives were more positive. All these emotions are what makes us human. Life experiences can shape us as a person and emotions can drive our future decisions.
All the pain and loss felt somewhat intense at times, but that was because I read about the characters’ lives in just a few days. In reality, many of us will go through some of the things these characters went through during our lifetimes. We’ve all experienced loss of a loved one at some point in our lives. I’ve lost family too soon due to health problems, and friends due to tragic accidents and suicide. Many of us have been in love and fallen out of love, and wondered if there is anyone out there for us. Readers will have no problems relating to the emotional challenges the characters within this book are going through, but be prepared for it being an emotional read. I had tears in my eyes on a number of occasions and even cried near the end after a few days of built up emotions. I think it was a combination of grief and relief that caused my own emotions to run down my cheeks.
This is not only an emotional read, but a thought provoking and inspirational one too. It reminds you how fragile life is, how easily loved ones can be taken away and how dreams can be completely shattered. It makes you question whether some things happen for a reason. My heart physically ached throughout this book, but the one thing I held onto was a feeling a hope. Nothing can take away your hope unless you let it. Hope is such a powerful thing. It can get you through pretty much anything if you allow it to help you.
I loved how this book made me feel so alive. Those raw emotions that make us so human. This is the kind of book that will inspire you to live for every moment and perhaps hold your loved ones a little longer and keep them closer. The Fragile Thread of Hope is a remarkable story by a very talented writer and is a book I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys an emotional read.
I’ve included three of my favourite quotes to give you an idea of the beautifully descriptive prose within this book:
A naughty breeze flirted with the stray grass in an uninhabited plot nearby, the lazy sway of the tall leaves betraying their shyness.
He found the rope of his consciousness slipping as darkness swept over him like a cloak.
She found herself glancing towards the heavens. The inky sky offered her a glimpse of the dark future that lay before her. The monstrous mountains stared back at her as if reminding her of her insignificance and mocking her for her helplessness.
It’s the autumn of 2012 and two people are about to find their lives totally turned upside down.
Still haunted by losing his brother at a young age, Soham has managed to establish a promising career in IT for himself in Bangalore. Fiona, after having had a difficult childhood, finds her life is finally taking a turn for the better. She has married her beloved and things are wonderful.
But when tragedy strikes them both yet again, their fundamentally fragile lives threaten to fall apart. Can Fiona and Soham overcome their grief and find some normality again?
I absolutely adored this book from start to finish. I found myself really wanting to savour it and so I took my time reading it. The writing was simply exquisite and the descriptions were just wonderful. Pankaj Giri has clearly given a lot of thought to this story.
The chapters are narrated by Sharon (Fiona’s mother), Fiona and Soham. The reader is given a good insight into their lives leading up to the individual tragedies. I warmed to the main characters instantly. I felt really bad for Soham who put himself through hell for years after his brother’s death.
It was really interesting learning about the different traditions; i.e. the festivals and what happens at funerals. I loved the description of the birch tree, how it loses all of its leaves year after year and yet it continues to stand there patiently. It waits for new leaves to grow and doesn’t give up hope. If only we could all be that patient and positive. This book really got me thinking and made me realise how short life really is and how you should make use of it. Material things are of course nice but loved ones are all the more important.
'The Fragile Thread of Hope' is a thought-provoking and emotional story about love and loss and how there can still be hope even in the darkest of moments. It gives a very strong message not to give up no matter what.
I really hope that Pankaj Giri writes more books. To not do so would surely be torture for his readers. I don’t normally compare authors with others, but I would say if you like Renita D’Silva’s books then you will hopefully enjoy this one.
