Title: Peace Betrayed
Author: Punam Farmah
Devan Coultrie has found his Peace. He has a home, a business; his relationship with Aditi is ready to move to the next stage. They have plans to start a family, their life together could finally settle down properly.
Retreating to Peace was the first stage. The next was to make it all a picture perfect postcard.
Only Devan and Aditi’s relationship isn’t that straight forward. Its strength is about to be sorely tested.
Devan Coultrie has a decision to make.
He could keep and enjoy his ‘Happily Ever After’ in Peace, Montana.
Or will he betray it and lose everything that he has ever wanted?
At the beginning of this story, I have to say I wasn’t thrilled with Devan or Aditi though I understood where they were coming from. Their relationship was a perfect reflection, sadly, on the way that most relationships go nowadays. People have a tendency to lose interest in one another whether that be for material things or other people begs to differ.
The choice to reignite a relationship and work through the strains happens less and less. I was happy to see the arc of Devan and Aditi’s relationship though. Life through a lot at the two of them but the way they handled it was almost admirable.
The author put a lot of soul into this story. Even though its short, the characters are believable and so are the things that they are going through. In spite of everything, love can persevere.
