Book review on amazon: (By Osman Khan)
Highly recommended! 5 Star Rating: A fascinating read, providing insights into the struggles and ultimate triumph of a young determined asian woman named Abeera. Abeera is not satisfied with the status quo and is looking to live life to the full, by struggling against customs, established norms and patriarchy. Whilst taking you through Abeera’s challenges of life, the author tackles deep and absorbing topics in a simple and relatable way. Topics include the reality of true love, cultural divides, achieving self-fulfillment and attaining consciousness of the divine presence. This forces one to take pause and consider such imperatives from different perspectives and indeed leads one to question one’s own deep rooted viewpoints and biases. I especially liked the aphorisms at the end of each chapter highlighting the lessons one should take and apply from Abeera’s experiences. The heartaching love poetry is also very touching and moving. Experience the trials, tribulations, pitfalls of love and realization through the eyes of Abeera.

Book review By (David): Fascinating transformation through self-love: 5 Star Rating: This story is very practical, simple and yet very relatable. The author takes us through the journey of Abeera that can really help one to find that inner peace, contentment and abundance that one lacks, simply by acknowledging and accepting the different opinions mentioned in the book.
The way the main character is transformed from all the harassment and abuse causing depressions and disappointments is mesmerising.
At some point the book takes a more philosophical and mysterious turn and ventures into the realm of understanding what the spiritual quest every soul is longing for, whether you are conscious or not about it.
The book is fascinating as one comes to understand that the character is actually blessed for every single misery. Her patience and gratitude gives her the power to face all the obstacles and challenges.
She is paid back enormously because of her honesty, courage and the measures she took simply by making sure that her respect comes first, before anything else as she loves herself.
In the journey the character not only makes a lot of sacrifices but also she is able to harnest her inner courage to successfully become a new person and embrace all the new discoveries that she makes along the way.
Finally, at the end of each chapter, the writer lists in a direct way all the lessons the girl has learned: these are very powerful and priceless lessons to find guidance and start to take ownership of one's life.

A few quotes from the book:
“Running after desires and mundane stuff does not give us peace. Peace is within us and contentment is within us.”
“Love is between you and you. If you keep looking for love outside you. You will always remain disappointed.”
“Happiness does not come from money, materials or possessions. Happiness comes from within oneself.”
“The first thing is peace with yourself rest everything follows in its own way and its own time.”
