Inside the Book:
Title: Three Sides to the Story
Author: Dona Sarkar
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Contemporary Romance
From the author of Scattered Ashes comes a moving, insightful novel about the decisions, large and small, that draw couples, families, and cultures closer together—or tears them apart. . .
Teaching assistant Quinn Montgomery was satisfied with a secret romance. After all, as a professor, Shalin Roy was technically her boss at the university in Ann Arbor. Both their careers would be at risk if their relationship was exposed. Not only that, Quinn is a mentor to Shalin’s shy older daughter, Kashmira, who looks up to her like a big sister. So when Quinn’s graduate studies end, she is unprepared for Shalin’s ultimatum: marry him, or it’s over.
Born in Afghanistan, Shalin long ago lost the wife who’d been arranged for him. He never dreamed he’d commit to another woman. But his bright, beautiful student has captured his heart. Now they should make it official. To his two daughters, he thinks, Quinn is already like family. So he is unprepared for the young women’s fierce disapproval—or the challenges that follow. Soon, a romance that seemed perfect in private will be severely tested by the complex, competing needs and loyalties of three very different people . . .
