I love reading books and also love to extract maximum positive things from it.
Why I Love Reading Novels!
Reading a novel means reading someone’s views,opinion, experience, ideas, research, and maybe a life journey of a person.It's really interesting when you live someone’s life while reading. I genuinely feel it’s really boring to live one particular life in a lifetime if you are getting an opportunity to live several life's at a particular time. I am always poignant while it comes to reading. Reading helps me to take away my stress and anxiety. When I submerge in a book, I truly love the characters.Recently, the pandemic helped me to peep into the pages of many books that are now taken in their permanent room in my kindle library. One of them is the book of Sayed Yaheen,"Wounds Remain". I came across her book through a Facebook post and thought to give it a try.
The book clearly depicts why one should not keep one foot on two boats at a time.A perfectly woven story that revolves around love, lust,betrayal, and revenge.

A fast-paced unputdownable story, it's like watching a web series where each episode is well crafted and all scenes are so vivid that one can imagine it happening before your eyes.
The storyline is very interesting and engaging, it seems like two parallel stories are running together but how they are interconnected with each other is really very interesting and very hard to guess so it makes the reader's interest intact throughout the book.

Hi Ms. Suchi!
After reading this review, it seems like an interesting novel to me. You're absolutely right about reading novels that give us the opportunity to live someone else's characters. I realized this when I spent most of the time reading books back in the year 2016. Reading books leave a huge impact in your mind and eventually in your thoughts and life.
So, we all should start reading good books like this. The questions you raised after giving us a short description and storyline of the book seemed so apt and intimidating. I personally believe most of the answers to the questions revolve around the book's title itself 'Wounds Remain.' Thanks for sharing this wonderful review, Ms. Suchi.
