Thank you @rolibooks for a review copy of the book

Like Fine Wine by Syeda Imam is a captivating read that delves into the love stories of nine extraordinary couples. From the nawab of cricket Tiger Pataudi and Sharmila Tagore to chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand and Aruna, each love story is unique and captivating.

The author takes us on a journey through the lives of these couples, exploring the intricacies of their relationships and what makes them special. Each story is told with sensitivity and empathy, drawing the reader in and making them feel a part of the love story.

What sets Like Fine Wine apart is the author's ability to explore the different facets of love. Is it given or taken, or both? Does it double or halve the lives it touches and enfolds? Is it luck or gruelling hard work, or the two together? These are some of the questions that the author explores through the stories of these nine couples.

The book is also filled with interesting anecdotes and trivia about the couples, adding to its charm. For example, the protocol followed by a Knight of the Empire to propose, or how Dr Karan Singh, the prince of Kashmir, married the princess of Nepal.

As a young'un, we all wonder when we'll find our soulmate. But reading these love stories gives me hope that my better half is just around the corner. Sure, their tales may not be as dramatic as a Hollywood blockbuster, but it's the little things that make them so special. Only the two lovebirds in question can understand the significance of their love - us mere mortals will never fully grasp it.

Let's face it, romance novels can set expectations so high, we're bound to be let down. But the real-life experiences of these couples show us that love can conquer all. They've tackled adversity and jumped over obstacles like Olympic athletes, proving that true love is worth fighting for.

Overall, Like Fine Wine is a delightful read that celebrates the power of love. It is a reminder that love can be found in the most unexpected places and that it has the ability to transform lives. Whether you are a hopeless romantic or a skeptic, this book is sure to leave a lasting impression on you.

The review is tempting like a wine which is fine. Looks pricey but a good wine doesn‘t come cheap. Added to the wish list. Thanks for introducing the book.
