The book is about a mother's constant love for her child even after her death. Rupali lost her parent at an early age but, her mother Lakshmi continues to be at her side all through the different phases of her life sometimes looking angry, sometimes looking happy, and sometimes as a guardian angel who protects her and her family. The book is filled with flavours of India and you could find elements of humour, romance, family bonding, and the supernatural.
Just like the blurb says, Forever and Ever is about a mother's constant love for her child. The book is a quick, one-sitting read, but it's full of that special bond between a mother and her daughter. Lakshmi touches her daughter's life in a number of ways from writing a series of letters to be given to Rupali on birthdays and important life events to appearing when needed. The story is a bit choppy at times and feels rushed here and there, but that doesn't diminish the emotional level. As a mother, it's impossible not to get caught up in the many ways this woman continues to solidify her bond with her daughter, even from beyond the grave. It's certainly a touching story as we follow Rupali from a young age into adulthood, seeing how she cherishes those letters from her mother, and how much influence they have over her decisions.
