How did Trisha come up with such an incredible collection of stories? Who or what was her inspiration? Why was she being so suspiciously silent? When Trisha disappears suddenly, complaining of a writer’s block, Debika, her editor for years, is left distressed—theirs was not just a writer-editor association but a bond of friendship and trust. Soon afterwards, the surprising news of her award-winning collection hits the headlines. As Debika braces herself to read the stories, she knows she must let go of her resentment. What she is not prepared for, however, is the shocking revelation that awaits her—a dark secret that will unravel itself in the most mysterious ways.A nuanced novella with a twist in the tale; a story about stories of women, who live complex lives within commonplace existences; each devising her own escape from the realities and challenges of love, marriage, and motherhood, to follow one’s heart’s desire,in the most unexpected ways.
