‘Promise Me a Million Times’, as the name suggests, is a love story. As it had been long since I had read a love story, I decided to read this book as it had good reviews. Love stories, after all, are touching and we require that sort of a therapy to melt the heart from time to time. So, here’s what the book has to offer the readers!
The book revolves around the story of two young boys, Ed and Charlie, who are orphans. The two move from their small village to a big city to realize Ed’s dream of becoming an actor. Ed and Charlie are best friends, more like brothers, and since they are orphans, they are like family to each other. Thus, when Ed dreams of making it big in the showbiz world, Charlie accompanies him to the big city. However, he himself does not have any specific motive in life.
Once in the city, the two boys struggle to find a place to stay. After a while, they meet a group of boys and move into their room. The boys soon become best friends and more like family to Ed and Charlie and shower them with love, hope and life.
However, Charlie’s life assumes a new meaning when he meets a beautiful young medical intern, Aster. Aster, an orphan herself, has a dark past but is very optimistic about life. She fills Charlie’s life with purpose, motivation and love and inspires him to make it big in life by pursuing his passion for writing.
But then, love stories have to have a twist, don’t they? So, there comes a twist in their picture perfect love story and it will break your heart. To know what happens to the couple and to Ed, read the book!
