I received Seeking Redemption by Dr. Madhu Vajpayee as a review copy from BookR3vi3ws and would like to thank Debdatta for the same. The book is the story of Dr Meera Mishra, a girl who stands for truth inspite of oppositions.
The Blurb (from Goodreads):
Story of a girl Meera, who is unwittingly drawn into a conflict from where she finds it difficult to emerge unscathed. It’s her journey from being a simple, medical graduate belonging to a middle class family to the uncharted territories of corruption and caste-based politics. Her path is crossed by two men, both compelling yet completely contrasting characters, who are going to change her life forever. If it is Aman Sharma who can challenge her ideals, defy her resolves and make her the person she finally becomes, it is Abhay Bharti’s sublime love which enables her to go through the vicissitudes of life. It’s also the story of her loss as well as triumph against her own demons to find her true self.
The book starts with an epilogue where Meera is standing outside the court waiting for the proceedings to begin. And then the whole story is in flashback starting from Meera’s convocation.
Meera, the daughter of GK Mishra, a school teacher and Ahalya Mishra, has just completed her MBBS and is preparing for the convocation when she is approached by a senior who wants to befriend her. After much persuasion, she agrees. This boy is Aman Sharma, MD medicine. She stats preparing for her PG exams and does not get through and applies for residency which she does not get because of her friendship with Aman. In comes Abhay Bharti, an IAS officer in the Ministry of Health, who helps her whenever she needs it.
The author has put a lot of topics in the perspective in the form of this book.The characters are lifelike and somewhere I could feel some of authors experiences coming to the fore. The language is simple and the editing needs more attention. The story is fast paced and the book can be finished in a short span of 2 hours.
