Emotions and Elation-Book Review

Banani

Each expectant mother goes through a different journey, each relationship with the unborn child special. This book is a piece of my soul. It does not aim to be a guidebook but is a detailed journal of my beautiful journey. Yes, my body went through a tremendous transformation and not every moment was as smooth as I thought it to be. What started out as a period of pampering and feasting was soon overshadowed by bouts of miserable times as well. A long separation from my husband and a gnawing loneliness marred my joy. I want to take you on an emotional ride, one that touched every nerve of my being. a joy that has to be experienced to be believed. welcome to my world !

MY REVIEW

Being a mother myself, I was eager to read the first-hand account of a first-time would be mother and her pregnancy journey.  It was a wonderful read.  The narration of the incidents was extremely lucid and I could visualize them unfolding in front of my eyes.  Right from the time the author discovered that she was pregnant, to the anxiety, to the coping up of joy and sorrow together, the journey has been described beautifully.

I loved the author’s husband’s love and cooperation throughout the pregnancy despite him going through a phase of sorrow.  The husband’s perspective also added freshness.  The narration is crisp.  The emotional journey of 9 months till the time the bundle of joy arrives can be felt through the author’s words.

All-in-all an extremely endearing read, which every woman who has gone through this stage would be able to relate to.  I would recommend this book to all the book lovers.
