Torn Together by Emlyn Chand




Why does growing up have to be so difficult?
Daly English is having a harder time than most. Her future as an artist is unclear, her relationship with her mother is damaged beyond repair, and--to top it all off--her long-term boyfriend is having an affair. When Daly befriends two unlikely individuals--first a pregnant teen, and then a light-hearted charmer from India--her cynicism begins to melt away.
Meghann provides insight into Daly's life and an endless stream of good advice, comforting Daly despite her own less fortunate position. 

Kashi proves he cares too much about Daly 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."

Will these friendships be enough to turn around Daly's directionless life? Will she move past the hurt and learn to trust again? Or will her mother, once again, ruin everything she's worked so hard to achieve?
Torn Together, Emlyn Chand's first sojourn into Literary New Adult Fiction, weaves a tale of friendship, dreams, and a lingering loss, while illustrating how our similarities often drive us apart.

  2. I love the idea of the love being tested by the different cultures. That often makes for a very interesting story. I'll be sure to check this one out.

  3. HELLO EMLYN. KASHI SOUNDS YUMMY AND ALLURING. HER EX-BOYFRIEND IS A JERK AND HER MOTHER SHOULD BE MORE SUPPORTED OF HER DAUGHTER. YOUR NOVEL IS INTERESTING. I KIND OF WENT THROUGH WHAT DALY IS EXPERIENCING. IT WAS HARD BUT SOMEHOW THINGS GOT BETTER FOR ME (SMILE)

  4. How long has the "new adult fiction" genre been around? I've heard of YA and adult but this "new adult" is new to me.

  5. I already feel for Daly. I think she'll be a character I will connect with even if her experiences differ from mine.
