Untitled design-13 copy.png



A millionaire, a widow and a monk. A plane crash. In this poignant and unforgettable debut novel three destinies are linked for eternity in a tale narrated by Time.

Meet Radha. She was left in a dumpster on the side streets of Mumbai to die as she was born; premature and undernourished. Meet Mira. At sixteen she is to marry a man she has never met before. On her wedding day, she carries a knife. And Gaurav. People say love is more important than money. But what happens when having one means you can’t have the other?



Why am I at the acknowledgement page right now?
What do you mean by stating that the story is over?
Y’all playing with my heart as if you are making some meatballs for your pasta 🍝

Part Star Part Dust is a story that will leave your heart and soul stuck in a Tug of War!


I am not going to write a long review or anything because you need to jump in knowing nothing at all.

I loved how the author chose to tell this story. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, and raw.

I wished that the book was a bit longer, so that I got to see every single pivot point in everyone’s stories. It was a bit rushed, and a bit of telling over showing. However, it still managed to touch my soul and make me cry.


I received a review copy in exchange with an honest review. I also purchased my own physical copy of Part Star Part Dust.
