The Promise is an intriguing tale of Shambhavi and Arjun. Shambhavi is a carefree chirpy girl who is into interior designing. She takes life as it comes and is highly dedicated towards her present passion, interior decoration. She is a creative person at heart and that is what makes her paint as well. She paints for the love of it, not for money. Arjun is a guy who is completely immersed in his business. All he thinks about day and night is making money, feelings, relations do not matter to him and why would they? He lost his family and got his heart broken. He doesn’t believe in the term ‘love’ and is quite a hard man to deal with.

He gets drawn to him and finally get involved in a relation until Shambhavi announces one day about her pregnancy. Arjun feels that Shambhavi is doing so in order to get his money because this is what his last love, Prehal did with him. He feels he has been cheated on again and asks Shambhavi to leave forever. Shambhavi determined to not ask for his help anymore, walks out of his life, she struggles to earn money all by herself and not only that she decides to keep the baby and not get aborted. She doesn’t even ask for a penny from Arjun even after being financially at loss. She has a dying father to care and a new life to develop but she does everything. What would Shambhavi do to earn a living? How would she face the rest of the world all by herself? Will Arjun ever realize his mistake? Will they ever meet again?
Well, that is for you to find out. Read the book to drown yourself in this amazing love fable. I seem to have fallen in love with Nikita Singh’s writing yet again. A lot of people may criticize her on and oft but I seriously love the way she writes romantic fiction. If you are a die-hard romantic and a girl as well, do pick the book, you are surely going to love it. Your heart will cry when you will find Shambhavi struggling all the way all alone and have tears while you read Part IV of the book. The trauma of a pregnant unmarried girl abandoned by her boy friend has been well portrayed. I just love every part of the book, nothing unnecessary, just the apt usage of words at the apt situation. The beginning of each chapter gives you a new lesson about life divulging a few realities related to emotions if in case you are unaware about them. This is something that makes me love the book even more. Go ahead and read the book. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
