When Zain's girlfriend ran away a week before their marriage, Datin Adibah had no choice but to look for Sofea's replacement. Entered Ersalina. The first time she met Ersalina, Datin Adibah 'fell in love' and she knew that this is the right girl for her son, Zain.

Ersalina, who was only 18 years old at that time, couldn't say no to her mum, Haliza. For her, seeing her mum happiness was everything to her and in a way, to seek her mum's forgivness for her 'sins'. Haliza, persuaded Ersalina to accept Datin Adibah's proposal for a reason. Knowing that her daughter is pregnant without Ersalina herself knowing it, marriage was the only way out, eventhough Haliza didn't know who made her daughter pregnant.

Ersalina was pregnant and she didn't know it? hmmm.. weird erk?

Anyway, Zain and Ersalina got married. Since they were strangers, they decided to be friends and would go from there eventhought their feelings for each other were strong. A month passed without Zain 'touching' Ersalina when Ersalina fell from stairs and miscarriage. The perfect happy life they were having were no longer perfect.

Zain was furious. The wife he thought was innocent infact not as innocent as he thought. Since then, Zain would hurt Ersalina's feelings but for her love to Zain, she endured all the pains knowing that it was her fault. To make it short, they eventually made up... yippie... well, that was until Datin Adibah knew Ersalina's history. Now, it's the mum's turn to be furious; Haliza lived in guilt all the time...

I won't bored you with the lengthy review. Of course it ended with happy ending - which I love =D And you would say that this is just another cliche love novel. In a way, it is but I gotta admit, there are some valuable points in this novel. It shows how a mother's love can affect the child's love, happiness and what they are capable of doing for the love of their children.

If it's up to me, I would dedicate this novel to mothers out there... without them, who are we?

My rating: 6.5/10
