“Just as an eagle needs a push to soar into the sky, she needs a gentle nudge to achieve her dreams. And if she falls, he will be there to catch her, lift her, and push her again until she flies to stars…”

Love…does it mean going around the trees in Switzerland, singing tra-la-la-la in the snow? Is it chanting “I love you” mantra a thousand times a day? Is it about gifting teddies and roses to your partner? Or is it bombarding each other with a thousand and one pings in Messenger from morning till night?

Life batters Samaira. Stuck to these clichés, she loses everything…her love, parents, and wealth. Hopeless, she collides against the dynamic boss of Creative Tanks (CT), Vivian, who basically holds great contempt for losers. He aims to be the top entrepreneur in India, whereas Samaira has not even a notion of her dreams. Fate plays its own game when she goes in search of work, where she encounters him again. An air of mystery surrounds her, which tugs at him. Despite being opposites, sparks fly, and they are attracted. Vivian is perfect, but she vows that she will never fall in love again. He reaches a point where he would do just about anything to bring back the smile on her face. The chase begins. She keeps running away…from love, hope, and aspirations, and he keeps trying to bring her back on track.

Thus their journey begins from the end, with oodles of inspiration and love… Vivian breaks Samaira’s shell and guides her into pursuing her broken dreams. He promises that he will be there for her if life pulls her down and hold her tight when she needs support. Together, they vow to each other, “We can. We will. We must.” But when Vivian tumbles and it is Samaira’s turn to break his fall, will she catch him? Walking on the arduous path of life, will they climb the ladder of success together or crash and burn? Can love be enough of a catalyst to attain their dreams? And now life threatened not to throw just lemons but huge melons…

My Take

Starting from the cover of the book there is an digital abstract of night sky with stars with a couple holding their hands and two thumbs up. The cover is apt according to the plot. It’s been said that never judge by looking at its cover alone but I personally feel cover could be much better with the some creativity. The title of the book WE CAN, WE WILL, WE MUST is very inspiring and gives a positive vibes.

This is the story of main protagonist Samaira, who had stepped out from her married life after facing the brutal behaviors from her husband and mother-in-law. After getting legally divorced she moves to her parents home and finds out that her whole family passed away in an car accident including her brother. She has lost everything in her life, but she want’s to go ahead with life. Samaira collides with Vivian, it’s was a love at first sight for him. Vivian, boss of Creative Tanks who hates losers. Samaira joins Creative Tanks for her livelihood and rediscovers herself. Vivian keeps motivating Samaira for fighting back her fears and chasing dreams. Will Vivian confess his feeling to her? Do Samaira give her life a second chance? To know more grab the book.

The plot is blend of emotions, heartbreaks, romance, friendship, affection, promise, betrayal, marriage, dream, family, positive vibes and many more.

The plot is simple love story with strong dose of motivation and the author has been able to do full justice to it. The title of the first chapter was named The End and last chapter named The Beginning which i found was thought-provoking. Every chapter starts with a wonderful quotes which is really meaningful and inspiring. I feel the blurb should be short and crisp, an elaborated blurb explains the complete story in summary.

Language of the book is lucid and written in a simple way to comprehend for any kind of reader. The characters are well-developed and one can easily relate them. Narration of incidents is done impressive. The story is fast paced and the author had mentioned the meaning of unfamiliar words used in the book at end of page which is very helpful so everyone will able to understand the meaning.
