About the book:
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.
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."
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.

When this tour came about, I couldn't help but want to review this book. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase a signed copy from the author when ordering other copies of her books. I love the author's writing style in this book. The characters were really well portrayed throughout this story of how to deal with grief. The trials and tribulations that each character goes through is monumental, but the author manages to keep the story line from becoming to heavy to enjoy. I loved all of the details about the trip to India, as foreign travel consumes my heart :) The ending was something that I did not see coming, but I'm glad that some of the issues between characters were resolved. I can't wait to read more from the author :)
