Review of 'The Fragile Thread of Hope'

 Review of 'The Fragile Thread of Hope'

A gripping emotional inspirational fiction about love, loss, and finding hope in the darkest of times.

In the autumn of 2012, destiny wreaks havoc on two unsuspecting people—Soham and Fiona.
Although his devastating past involving his brother still haunted him, Soham had established a promising career for himself in Bangalore.
After a difficult childhood, Fiona's fortunes had finally taken a turn for the better. She had married her beloved, and her life was as perfect as she had ever imagined it to be.
But when tragedy strikes them yet again, their fundamentally fragile lives threaten to fall apart.
Can Fiona and Soham overcome their grief?
Will the overwhelming pain destroy their lives?
Seasoned with the flavours of exotic Nepalese traditions and set in the picturesque Indian hill station, Gangtok, The Fragile Thread of Hope explores the themes of spirituality, faith, alcoholism, love, and guilt while navigating the complex maze of family relationships.
Inspirational and heart-wrenchingly intimate, it urges you to wonder—does hope stand a chance in this travesty called life?

If you love contemporary literary fiction novels by Khaled Hosseini and Jhumpa Lahiri, contemporary christian fiction novels by Melissa Storm, and tragic romance novels by Jojo Moyes and Nicholas Sparks, then make time for Pankaj Giri’s new heartbreaking inspirational novel The Fragile Thread of Hope.

My review 

This is a beautiful and tender love story that really struck a chord with me. The different stories were woven together expertly to make a great overall read. It was both emotional and heart lifting. I enjoyed every minute of this fantastically written novel. I love contemporary fiction so this book was right up my street.

The writer was able to provoke such emotion from the descriptions and the tenderness of the characters. I loved the hopefulness of Fiona and how the story follows the two families from different times cleverly. A heart breaking read that will stick with you a long time after you have finished.
