Book Review of Footsteps in Time by Archana Pathak

Updated: Sep 11

“What’s the earth

With all its art, verse worth-

Compared with love, found, gained, and kept?”

- Robert Browning


What happens when you visit a place that blurs the lines between the present and past, where your reality gets tangled with a shadow of an alternate reality?

When Aparna comes to the village to assist her mother in selling their ancestral house, little does she know that she is going to embark on a journey, which will shake the very core of her sanity. An antiquated Haveli, an echoing past, a specter from beyond will put her on a path that would be strewn with secrets; secrets that were kept from her by her own family. In order to solve the puzzle that is consuming her very being, she will have to make some difficult choices.

Will she find the answers she is looking for?

Title/ Cover –

The title of the book got my attention in the first place. I pick this book up because of the title. The title sends the vibes of some mystery that is going to unfold in this book. One of the most important parts is that the title fits well with the novel and is a good read for people who are new to reading. It's a great read for people who love stories that are filled with imagination.

Storyline –

Footsteps in Time is a story about Aparna, a psychiatrist living in England, UK. She receives a letter from India informing her that her mother has not been kept well. When Aparna comes to the village to help her mother sell their ancestral house, she doesn't know that she is about to embark on a journey that will shake her sanity. She then meets Anand, the owner, and seller of Haveli. But what she thinks is just another trip to India soon reveals the secrets of Haveli. The book started slow but it soon got interesting as the story started to unravel. The suspense and mystery kept the readers busy.

Conclusion –

The plot is complex and it switches between various scenarios. The pace was good and the writing is impeccable. The suspense was strong but I was not convinced that the lineage of Aparna was revealed in the end. This was a great read that kept me engaged throughout. If you are a fan of mystery, thriller, and romance, then this should be on your TBR. If not, then you will most likely fall in love with this genre. Exploring something new is a great way to open yourself.

Rating – 4 /5
