Star-Crossed Lovers in the Blue: Love in the Time of Corona by Rajesh Talwar
Since the pandemic times have allowed writers, authors, and reading enthusiasts to explore and weave various stories that emerge out of the situations where life came to a standstill are enjoyable to read. In this connection, books by many authors have been published, and it’s a beautiful thing most of the books are welcomed by amateur and seasoned readers. But again, taking time to write and present the stories on such situations with incidents happening around that affect the psyche of any human is a challenge. On a personal front, I salute every writer and author for this!
Being an avid reader and reading across many genres often leaves me confused about picking up a book mainly meant for children or young readers. But all said, there lies the magic of imagination while reading children’s literature, and mostly if it is a fantasy adventure, there are no bounds!
About the Book
Star-Crossed Lovers in the Blue is the story of Utir, a mermaid and Arj, a merman who reside in the Newada Sea. They meet by chance, fall in love, and begin loving each other deeply and passionately until Utir, the mermaid, ends up having an arranged marriage. The two lovers lead separate lives, beset with heartbreak, hardships and trouble, for many years before they reencounter each other.
Creating such a world with real-time problems that humans face is a great attempt. This is my second book from the author, and I wish to read more of his works.
