Find Somebody to Love by Divya Sood



⭐⭐⭐☆



This book is about love but most definitely not a romance.

During college, Priya is in love with her best friend Leyla. After a miscarriage and heartbreak, Leyla leaves and effectively disappears from Priya’s life. Seventeen years have passed. Priya is working as an optician at 20/20. Her cousin, Prem, recently committed suicide back home in Calcutta, India. Priya’s thoughts are constantly occupied by the past and centred around Prem and Leyla. The past walks into the present when Leyla comes in as the new optometrist at 20/20. Priya has nursed and nurtured her feelings for Leyla all these years and they come back in a rush, though Leyla is married.

The book is heavy reading but written in a strangely addictive prose. Neither Priya nor Leyla are perfect but at the end of the book they are not terrible people either. In fact, Leyla is quite a beautiful person.

This is neither a feel-good book nor a romance but hauntingly realistic.
