You Are the Best Wife
by Ajay K Pandey
We have read many love stories about boyfriend and girlfriend, and honestly, we are done with that part. We have not read much about what should be a love story between a husband and wife. Does it remain the same, or it explores and talks so much about love as a feeling? It is precisely what Ajay K. Pandy brings you with his soulful book ‘You are the best wife, and I am sure you will love it from the core of your heart. In my view, a true love story, fortunately and sadly, both. Though the author speaks about his experiences very frankly and with humour, I still can’t keep myself empathising with what he experiences as the love of his life left him during the journey. For the rest of the story, give the book a read.
