MY REVIEW: The author provided me with a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.

The story is about an artist Raman and his life. He grows up dirt-poor in the slums with an abusive father. But he has one talent that stands him apart from the other children: he is good with colours!

His mother gifts him a paintbrush that sets him off on his journey towards becoming a great artist. The paintbrush stays with him throughout his life and has a great significance for him.

Raman does see success as an artist but he also has to face many losses in his life. Raman remains determined to find his masterpiece that will fulfil him as an artist.

Raman tries his best to be a good father to his daughter Pakhi who also turns out to be a talented artist.

Will Raman be able to find his masterpiece or not?

I recommend this book to readers as an extremely touching and well-told story.

I am a voracious reader and am always in the middle of a book. I am also obsessed with coffee, makeup, skincare and fitness, though not necessarily in that order!
