Young, pretty and successful, Twisha Khanna has it all. She works hard and has no time for frivolities like love. After all, being the creative head of a happening travel magazine is no joke.

So when she travels to Shimla on an assignment, the last thing on Twisha’s mind is love. But then, life has other plans. On finding a stack of old love letters that speak of an unrequited romance, Twisha is convinced that she must find the man who wrote these letters and help him.

Along the way, she meets spoilt rich boy Alex, who is everything she would NOT want in a man. As the two try to reunite the old lovers mentioned in the letters, they are hardly aware that how they feel about love and life is going to change forever…

Story in a nutshell

A successful career, a couple of true friends is what Twisha’s life is all about. Love is the last thing on her mind. Not that she despises love, she just feels that it is not worth her time. Twisha goes to Shimla for her work assignment and happens to bump into some old letters.

Twisha mocks the letters initially but gets glued to them once she starts reading them. She decides to get in touch with the writer and complete his incomplete love story. She and her friend Bobby, sets on their path on finding David, the person who wrote those letters for the love of his life, Jasmine.

She meets Alex, David’s grandson who is nothing but a rich, spoilt guy. Is Twisha successful at completing David’s love story? Does Twisha change her notion about love? Is she successful at finding the love of her life?


‘For the sake of love’ is a plain and simple love story. There are no cheesy lines, no unexpected twists and turns. And that is what makes it one of the kind, a unique love story.

The cover is a simple one and conveys a faint idea about what the story would be like. I did not find it very catchy. As the saying goes ‘Never judge a book by its cover’, I too did not judge it.

The story has been plotted well and thoughtfully. The pace of the story is neither too fast nor to slow. It keeps you hooked on to it. The flow of the events in the story has been done well. You will not feel lost at any point of time. The chapters are perfectly placed. The language is simple and lucid. The first person narration of this story will surely make an incredible impact on your minds. The engaging narration will keep you hooked on to this story. I found it very similar to the movie “Letters to Juliet”. And maybe that is one of the reasons why, I could predict few incidents from this story.

This story gives you many lessons about love.
  • True love doesn’t demand anything, it only gives.
  • Love can never be defined, it can only be expressed.
  • Love is selfless.
  • No time is a great time when it comes to love.

For the sake of love is a simple love story which will show you how beautiful love can be.

I rate-

Cover: 3/5

Characters: 3.5/5

Story: 3.5/5

My overall rating for this book is 3.5/5 stars. 
You can buy your copies of this amazing love story on Amazon.
