Penguin presents A Handful of Sunshine by Vikram Bhatt

 If love comes back, will you let it go? Again.
The first time Veer sets eyes on Mira, he feels such a strong attraction that he is swept away by the magic; Mira feels it too. Soon it becomes their life. It is as if the only reality is this inexplicable force that draws them together.
However, just like the whirlwind that it is, this love tears them apart. A tragedy catches them unawares and jolts them out of their dream. What is left in its wake is hatred—as potent as their love.
Several years later, fate plays another dirty trick and brings them face-to-face. Again. This time, the choice is theirs: to let their hatred destroy them or give love another chance. 
‘You can never love the way you loved for the first time, for it is the only time that you love with an unbroken heart’
