    1. When I See Your Face by Devika Fernando reminds me of Cecelia Ahern's book,P.S. I Love You.An extremely sweet and romantic love-story based on trust, faith and letting go of the past.Devika Fernando has woven this tale so gorgeously that at times you'll find tears welling up your eyes and smile crossing your face like a flash within a very short period of time. Although this is a short story, but still the author has managed to keep the air of feeling romantic till the very end and in these shor [...]

    2. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Devika Fernando's debut romance, When I See Your Face. The author possesses a keen insight into the workings of the human mind and heart, as well as a gift for language. Her writing has a poetic touch about it that is perfectly suited for a love story, and her clever use of metaphor and simile allows the reader to glimpse the world in intriguing new ways. If I had any quibble with the story, it would be that the end was a bit abrupt. While it leaves the characters -- [...]

    3. I wrote in an older review that I’m pretty shy when it comes to contemporary literature, because I’m not very accustomed to its genres, styles and new trends; plus, I don’t always know what I’m getting into. However, after recently discovering a few Romanian and foreign book tubers and after creating my and Twitter accounts, my interest and appetite for contemporary books began to grow. It’s more like a combination of curiosity and the need to know what’s new and good to read.For to [...]

This is my first book which I read my a Sri Lankan author and I was so impressed with Devika's imagination and the way she have mastered the story with pain and happiness and it makes the reader glued to the story till the end.

    6. Breezy prose, expressive dialogues, detailed description and lazy, patient motion is how 'When I see your face' progresses. I swear I almost saw 'Cathy' outside my window once, while reading the book; such is the detailing that the author went into. Devika Fernando, might just be the next big thing in the literary world. Good luck Ms. Fernando.

    8. When I see your Faceaartivraman/20Devika Fernando’s “When I See Your Face” is a story that I was eager to read, even though eking out time to read it was a bit of a problem. This story is particularly close to my heart, for many reasons, not least of which is the yummy guy-next-door hero, Michael Newland. This debutant romance author (who is also foraying into paranormal romance now) spins a tale of true love between the unlikeliest pair.They find love in a hopeless situation and place, wh [...]

    11. Short and sweet. A romantic treat.Many romance stories focus exclusively on the physical aspects of attraction, but in When I See Your Face, the greatest obstacle in Cathy’s unexpected romance is his face, and who it reminds her of. Escaping the controlling, abusive hand of her husband, she takes solace in a small village outside the city and soon runs into a man who looks identical to the one she was trying to escape. The more she gets to know this man, the more traits she finds that her husb [...]

    12. Clean romance, so be warned!The title fits the story exquisitely - the story is, in fact, about a woman who runs from an abusive husband straight into a man who looks just like abusive husband. The issue of abuse is handled sensitively; the way Cathy rises from the ashes of her battered life is realistically portrayed. Aunty Grindle is an unbelievable character; she could have been drawn straight from the neighborhood of a village in Punjab, India, where warm, generous women will make it their b [...]

    13. I really enjoyed this book and the half book that was added as a bonus. Cathy has left her abusive husband and run away to a small village only to find another man there who looks remarkably like her abusive husband. She hates her husband but has found herself falling for the stranger that looks like him, from here the mystery deepens and readers are in for a romance with suspense and mystery. I really enjoyed this author's writing style making this a fun easy to read tale that was also compelli [...]

    14. The story is short and sweet, no lengthy dialogues or description. A perfect, quick weekend or weekday reading. The story could have been set anywhere but the mention of the central characters watching a bollywood movie threw me off for a while. I love it when books are short and spares the unnecessary descriptions, character thoughts and so on. Devika has come up with a winner.

    16. There are some books which evoke a sense of nostalgia, passion and love, of raindrops and balmy breezes, of light predicaments and romantic trysts! ‘When I See Your Face’ is one of those. It is the story of Cathy, who resolves to start life over, “without a husband who didn’t love her and whom she had grown to fear and avoid, if not hate.” Mark is the scheming charmer who treats her like a possession, and thinks it is his right to abuse her, whenever he is drunk. She falls in love with [...]

    17. This is Devika Fernando’s debut novel. Considering that, I must say it’s simple awesome. I loved the village background, the descriptions of the place and the atmosphere. The characters are very well drawn. While Cathy is petrified of her soon-to-be ex-husband, that does not stop her from creating a niche for herself and getting on with her life.Mark has been drawn out to be an excellent bad character. Well-etched! I liked Michael best of all. He’s perfect hero material - a guy who has cho [...]

    18. The story starts on a sad note but the change that is happening glues you to the book. The author has written the story with a lot of reality thrown in; It is a romance novel but has all the elements of a true story.It speaks of courage, resilience and how we can overcome any negatives in our life with a little faith & a lot of hard work. What I really liked is the positive tone of the book, it is a central theme and helps keep the main characters working towards their goals.The premise of t [...]

    19. This is an honest review written by a romance suspense writer. I dare say that in this capacity I have a good ability to judge a romance suspense novel. I find this book to be exquisite. Without wanting to divulge the plot, I will analyze Devika’s numerous and potent talents. Her writing is smooth and it flows easily like a gentle stream. In the beginning of the book and in an indirect and oblique way she fills the reader with suspense. The same holds true very strongly till the middle of the [...]

Leaving quickly she had no real idea of what she was going to do but knew she needed to get out. Ending up in a quiet village, she found a place to stay and began to heal. A surprising encounter in the local grocery store threw her for a loop and her strong reaction surprised even herself. Michael looked exactly like her abusive husband but [...]

    23. I’ll try to write an original review, as I saw that a lot of people already shared their opinions and I don’t want to repeat what they said.I started reading “When I See Your Face” after having read some promising excerpts from the book which sounded great. I wasn't sure if the author would manage to make the story compelling considering the fact that the novella is quite brief. Yet it happened very naturally and smoothly: I felt like a spectator who observed the characters from a short [...]

    24. *I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*This was a charming novella that was easy to read and touched the reader. Cathy was a great character to relate to and feel for. Escaping from her abusive husband and starting over is something we can all imagine doing if we found ourselves in her situation. She finds a quaint village to live in and meets Michael, a man who looks just like her soon to be ex husband. As someone who has lived the experience of leaving an abusive hus [...]

    30. What are the odds of a husband having a doppelgänger? This cute story is about a woman who runs away from her prestigious yet abusive husband, and sets out to live her own life. She immediately takes the bus into a village and meets some nice people but there is a surprise waiting for her. I enjoyed the story but I feel it could have been longer with better details, like the name of the villages.
