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.”At the beginning of this book, Emlyn Chand gives us two women who were living in the same house, but who were definitely not living together. A mother and daughter each locked in their own pain. Two new characters are added to the mix: an Indian man who believes in fate and a pregnant teen who believes in God's plan.
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?
"Torn Together," Emlyn Chand’s first sojourn into Literary/Women's Fiction, illustrates how our similarities often drive us apart.
Torn Together is a mixture of romance, healing, travel, and family issues. It's a story of a family who has to be torn apart in order to be put back together. It's touching and heartfelt, with elements that every mother and daughter will recognize.
Don't pick this book up if you want a quick, light, fun read. However, if you are in the mood for a book that will make you think after you put it down--give Torn Together a try.
