Description of the Book:
She then looked at the necklace on her, which he bought. I’m still searching for you, where have you gone? She screamed while standing in the middle of the road, drenched from the rain. I found her at the same place where they said goodbye to each other, both unknown of the fact that it was their last goodbye. She still visits that place every day and then glances at the gold necklace, which had their first photograph together. Filled with numerous questions in mind, she eagerly waited for Spring Season, as he promised to back by then, watching the snowfall through her window, waiting for the winters to pass away. Four months passed away since the last snowfall & it felt like nature skipped Spring this year on purpose. A lifelong wait, or at least that’s what she thought. Did the boy in the photograph came back - or was it just an illusion?
