Review of “Beyond Secrets”by Alka dimri saklani. 

Title : Beyond secrets 

Author: Alka dimri saklani 


Noel is a counsellor, risking his career for volunteering in an orphanage.

Nidhi is an engineering student on the surface, but deep down a broken girl in search of some unanswered questions.
Appu is a sweet little orphan, unaware of the cruelties of the world.
Despite being miles apart their stories interweave in “Aashiyana”, the orphanage. Their little journey together changes their lives in ways they never imagined.
One recurring nightmare, one unexpected phone call, one stolen diary, many lies and secrets, and a calling from the past are just the highlights. And when they depart, they are not the same anymore.
They didn’t hurt each other, it was a game of destiny. Will they ever be able to rediscover themselves and more importantly, will their paths ever cross again?
Beyond Secrets is a novel with layers of suspense and different nuances of relationships. And one question that can’t have just one answer – How long does it take for a scar to heal?


Beyond secrets by alka dimri saklani. First of all in this novel the reason for which I picked it up for reading was the title and its blurb. Title is really catchy and the blurb is exciting as it talks about secrets and suspense. 

The story revolves around 3 main characters Noel, nidhi and appu which is set in a orphanage. Well I felt the start as a bit boring and too much formality and plot to be a bollywood mix but as soon as the story progresses their is certain connection that I as reader felt connected to the book. Emotions, love, sacrifices are well described in this novel and ya suspense too but you can know only after you read it. 

Well the language Is really a simple one as an Indian author normally use along with proper grammar and editing might have been much better although the plot was beautifully paced in between till the end to keep a reader hooked to it. The characters are amazing and also the climax has been beautifully penned. I will rate it 4/5 stars as I felt the their is bit more improvement required to make it much more engaging at the start.
