The author draws on his experience as a psychologist and as a relationship counselor to bring into searing focus the inarticulate pain that children go through in a broken marriage.It is the story of two teenage girls Mannat and Eva, brought together by fate and the shared trauma of their parents’ crumbling relationships. With deep compassion, the author probes their uncomprehending pain and fears, their self-doubt, their loss of innocence, and their anger at a world that has betrayed them.Their friendship helps them forge tools for survival, and delineate identities for themselves from amongst the debris of their shattered childhood. The author makes no judgment for parents too are fallible, and are victims of their own limitations. Nor does he offer solutions. He merely draws the reader’s attention on the consequences of such conflicts on children. In doing so, he offers perhaps the only possible key (as well as a roadmap) to resolving marital conflict – the understanding that becoming a parent is a choice not a given. It is a choice that comes with the implicit clause of subsuming one’s own interests in favor of the young life until it reaches emotional adulthood.At its core, it is a deeply spiritual book that lays bare the great karmic wheel of action and consequence, showing us a way to outwit the ever-turning cycle of suffering.
