This week I am participating in the blog tour for a great woman's contemporary fiction book called Love Comes Later. Here is a brief synopsis:
Hind is granted a temporary reprieve from her impending marriage to Abdulla, her cousin. Little does anyone suspect that the presence of Sangita, her Indian roommate, may shake a carefully constructed future. Torn between loyalties to Hind and a growing attraction to Abdulla, Sangita must choose between friendship and a burgeoning love.
A modern quest for the right to pursue love and happiness, even when it comes in an unconventional package, LOVE COMES LATER explores similarities between the South Asian and Arab cultures while exposing how cultural expectations affect both men and women. Identities are tested and boundaries questioned against the shifting backdrops of Doha, Qatar and London, England. (From Goodreads)
The original and ground breaking premise of this book is it's blending of Asian and Arab cultures in a time when the world is trying to understand each other. I felt a good way to kick this book off on my blog would be a guest post by the author. Through her post we can see how she immersed herself in the culture and world of Doha, and used her experience as a vehicle to push her writing to the next level.
Love Comes Later explores the different aspects of love we find in our life, and the truthfulness we view ourselves with. Without further delay I turn you over to Mohanalakshmi Rajakumar.
