Women's Fiction
Date Published: 8/15/12

From her cheating boyfriend to her dead father and cold, judgmental mother, Daly knows she can’t trust others to be there when it counts. This cynicism begins to melt away when she meets Kashi, a light-hearted charmer from India, who decides he cares too much to let her fade into the background of her own life. After a series of false starts, their quirky romance carries them to India, where Daly must win the approval of Kashi’s family in order to seal their “forever.”

Meanwhile, Laine struggles to cope with the pain of early widowhood, fleeing into the pages of her well-worn library and emerging only to perform her duties as a social worker at the crisis pregnancy center. Although her daughter wants nothing more than to work as an artist, Laine doesn’t know how to redirect Daly to a more suitable profession without further damaging their tenuous relationship.

Can Laine look past her pain to learn from an unlikely mentor? Has Daly finally found someone whom she can trust? Will the women recognize their common bonds before the relationship is broken beyond repair?

My Rating:

My Review:
Oftentimes my blog is inundated with YA and Paranormal type books. While I love other genre's also, I sometimes find myself stuck in pattern. Boy am I glad I joined this tour and got a chance to step away from that for a while.

Emlyn Chand has done an amazing job of developing multi deminsional charchters that the reader will feel invested in from the start. I love being about to picture everything about my characters. 

While you have the main relationship and love story between Daly and Kashi, Emlyn also explores all of the other relationships in Daly's life and what has made her into the person she is and how people touch her life and circumstances change her life. 

I'm not going to lie, I hoped for a different ending, but I am at peace with how it ended. Great Women's Fiction story.
