A tale about passionate love and finding your soulmate . . . only to realize you will always come a close second

History repeats itself when Advik, a wayward boy from a broken family, catapults into Rihana’s heart as smoothly as he conquers the skies as an Indian Air Force pilot. What follows is a night of unabashed love, transporting the couple to heavenly bliss. Where will their unbridled love lead them? Will Rihana remain a mistress to Advik, for whom the love for his country comes first, or will she be able to make a place in his heart that is second to none? This heartbreaking saga of love, courage and sacrifice will leave you asking for more.

As I started to read the intro of Mistress of Honour I was sure that I had to be ready for an emotional turmoil. The story is beautifully written by Bhaavna Arora Ma'am, the connection she made between the present & past life of the characters is tremendous.This story is about how Indian Army men dedicate themselves to our country & protect us selflessly knowing that it might cost their lives. It also potrays how the family of army men are affected, how the wives of those brave men are truly the 'Mistress of Honour' ,how they struggle to keep their bond intact & the constant threat they live in.
The passionate language used to depict the love of army men for our country is absolutely commendable. The book attaches itself to you so much that all readers will feel each emotion the characters are going through.
I don't want to give out any spoilers hence I will just say one thing, after reading this book your respect for The Indian Army & their families will grow exponentially. Thank you Bhaavna Arora & Penguin India for this gem of a work.
