MY REVIEW :
” Just A Housewife” by Rakesh Verma is a must read book specially for the people who surely need to change their old mentalty and accept the modern society. The title of the book is apt and the cover of the book is quite simple yet justified. The blurb of the novel is so interesting. What I personally loved is how the author managed to make the blurb itself so intriguing in limited words. The book holds the story of 3 women ; Barkha, Aradhya and Anjali as well as three men Aneesh, Akhil and Arun. This book narrates a simple yet gripping story. There is a whole emotional ride within you while you turn the pages of the novel. The three characters of the novel are in search of their real identity in this world. The three woman, entirely different lifestyle but the feeling within all three is somewhere same. The three of them have their own inspirational journey. Overall, I loved reading this book as it holds so much positivity. Being a huge fan of romantic genre, I will recommend this book to everyone out here as this book defines love in its own way. Lastly, I would love if this book turns into onscreen series as that will surely have a greater impact on the society.
