Book Review of OF LOVE AND DISTANCE by Divya Jyoti Randev

Of Love and Distance was written and published by Divya Jyoti Randev. You may purchase this book at

Of Love and Distance is set in India and the U.K. It's a story about love, cultural barriers, overcoming adversity and strength of spirit.

Lisa is a journalist tasked with interviewing a movie star (who also happens to be her teenage crush). Whilst on their way to the studio
they are kidnapped and held for ransom (Lisa being caught up in it because she happened to be there). The relationship between Lisa and
Robert develops from this point.The experience for both of them is terrifying and, of course, traumatizing. 

The second part of the book explores the psychological implications and struggle of the main character, Lisa. The reader gets an insight into Indian culture as Lisa's perspective is of course, deeply rooted in her own culture. The author describes the after-effects of trauma all the while keeping hope alive throughout the book.

I would like to warn readers that there are themes explored in thisbook that are not for the faint hearted.

4 Spiders for this great read!
