Second Chance is a tale of the protagonist Ragini Mathur’s desire to remarry after she opted for a divorce to end her abusive first marriage.
Ragini is portrayed as a simple girl with traditional values yet as someone who has a strong, independent mind and knows what she wants.
Her high emotional state makes her vulnerable at times and the story brings out such situations as she endeavours to find a suitable match.
Her efforts make her meet and interact with at least six different suitors and take her on a roller-coaster emotional ride. And when she does meet her ideal match, she finds he is not legally free to marry.
However, her determination to marry again on her terms is what defines the story.
Priced at INR. 300, Second Chance is available on shelves, including Amazon and Flipkart.
