Faith and the Beloved

Faith and Beloved is a riveting saga of love, lust, betrayal and revenge.

This book has two parallel plots – One is of Naithy and her daughter Alice, the other of two brothers, Arun and Prem. This book starts with a murder being committed. Alice killed her step father Tony D’Souza and is on the run for her life. The plotline kept me on my toes. I loved the storyline as well as the narration.

Criticism –
Though the story is intriguing and engaging, it has too many characters
and as they say, too many cooks spoil the broth. Too many characters, unnecessary details, too much of sexual scenes and bad editing spoils the book. This book had all the chances of being one of the best thriller books of our country, if only the author had sent the manuscript for another round of editing.
