#Review & #Giveaway of Where Earth Meets Water by @PiaPadukone #Published @HarlequinBooks

In this poignant and breathtaking debut, one man searches for meaning in the wake of incomparable tragedy…

Karom Seth should have been in the Twin Towers on the morning of 9/11, and on the Indian shores in 2004, when the tsunami swept his entire family into the ocean. Whether it's a curse or a blessing, Karom can't be sure, but his absence from these disasters has left him with crushing guilt—and a belief that fate has singled him out for invincibility. 

Karom's affliction consumes everyone around him, from his best friend, Lloyd, to his girlfriend, Gita, who hopes that a trip to India will help him find peace. It is in Delhi that he meets Gita's grandmother, Kamini—a quirky but wise woman with secrets of her own. At first Karom dismisses Kamini, but little does he realize that she will ultimately lead him to the clarity he's been looking for. 

Spanning the globe from New York to India, Where Earth Meets Water is a stunning portrait of a quest for human understanding, and a wise exploration of grief, survival and love in all its forms.

About the Author

Biography

Pia Padukone was born, raised and continues to live in New York City. A graduate of Stuyvesant High School and the London School of Economics, Pia has worked as a copywriter in healthcare advertising. In their spare time, Pia and her husband write Two Admirable Pleasures (http://twoadmirablepleasures.com/), a blog that combines their shared passions for books and the culinary dishes that are inspired by them. Pia debuts with Where Earth Meets Water and is working on her second novel.


A story of fate, survival, grief, and love.  And it was a powerful one at that. It was a very fast and easy book to read.  How would you feel if you survived at least two events that if you would have been there and YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE you would have died. I think that realization would be enough to drive anyone insane.  So follow the story of Karom and see how he deals with this fact.    I don't want to say to much and give something away.  But this is a book that is worth the read.
