All of twenty-three, Tara’s life takes a turn when her law teacher invites her to join a leading law firm as a young associate. For a smart and dedicated law student like Tara, the prospect of rubbing shoulders with the nation’s top legal practitioners is nothing less than a dream come true.
Tara’s foray into the world of courtrooms and legal proceedings is not without its fair share of delights and disappointments. On the one hand, she gets to work with her idol Meherdad E. Warren, her mentor-senior Tehlina and a host of cool friends. On the other hand, there is the stuck up and inefficient senior Praizeen Asthana and a rather obnoxious, backstabbing colleague Raj Parker, who are determined to make her already strenuous work life more difficult.
Away from the maddening buzz of office politics, in the courtrooms where Tara gets to study the commendable tactics of legal stalwarts, she runs into Yash. And even before Tara can realise it, she has already fallen for this witty and charming young man who has the makings of a brilliant lawyer. However, all is not well in this paradise.
Hidden behind the exterior of Yash’s sanguine personality is a secret that will sweep Tara off her feet. But more importantly, Tara must first learn to tackle her own demons, simplify her life and find her true calling. The novel is a bittersweet narrative of coming to terms with what the heart truly wants and taking that leap of faith.
