Book review: A Wisp of Hope by A.J. Chaudhury

A Wisp of Hope is a short story written by author A.J. Chaudhury

Prasanta idolised the great bandit Binjal, he loves nothing more than to pretend to be this 510bfpgvuhlfeared figure. One night his mother asks Prasanta for a favour, her husband, Prasanta’s father, has been sneaking out at night. He had changed and is no longer the kind man she recalls and she asked him to follow him, to find out the cause for this shift. Honouring his mother’s request he does as bid, but the truth of his father’s nightly excursions is beyond his imaginings and shapes the whole course of his future.

A Wisp of Hope is a nice short story, it reflects how one action can create an unexpected chain of events. The author’s style is such that it would appeal to both children and adults, and in some ways makes me think of the bandit tales I read as a youngster. It’s a simple tale with an easy to grasp moral, perfect for a afternoon or bedtime read.
