Description


THE YOUNGEST OF SIX daughters raised by a widowed mother, Meena is a young woman struggling to find her place in the world. Originally from India, her family still holds on to many old-world customs and traditions that seem stifling to a young North American woman. She knows that the freedom experienced by others is beyond her reach. But unlike her older sisters, Meena refuses to accept a life dictated by tradition. Against her mother's wishes, she falls for a young man named Liam who asks her to run away with him. Meena must then make a painful choice one that will lead to stunning and irrevocable consequences.
Heartbreaking and beautiful, "Everything Was Good-bye" is an unforgettable story about family, love, and loss, and the struggle to live in two different cultural worlds.
