Overview

Far From Home by Lorelie Brown

The marriage was of convenience. The feelings? Not so much.

My name is Rachel. I'm straight . . . I think. I also have a mountain of student loans and a smart mouth. I wasn't serious when I told Pari Sadashiv I'd marry her. It was only party banter! Except Pari needs a green card, and she's willing to give me a breather from drowning in debt.

My off-the-cuff idea might not be so terrible. We get along as friends. She's really romantically cautious, which I find heartbreaking. She deserves someone to laugh with. She's kind. And calm. And gorgeous. A couple of years with her actually sounds pretty good. If some of Pari's kindness and calm rubs off on me, that'd be a bonus, because I'm a mess-anorexia is not a pretty word-and my little ways of keeping control of myself, of the world, aren't working anymore.

And if I slip up, Pari will see my cracks. Then I'll crack. Which means I gotta get out, quick, before I fall in love with my wife.

I am very happy that I bought this book. A story of faith, acceptance and belief in the power of love. Very well written.

I truly was worried about how this would end, but not anymore! It ends quite wonderfully and tugged at my heart strings. When first starting on this read, I wasn't really sure about Rachel, meaning I wasn't sure if I liked her, but Pari right off the bat I adored. Really great little book that shows you the world through the eyes of a relapsing anorexic young lady who wishes desperately to love an be loved in return, but has no idea how, and with her feeling as though her life is turning upside down, she takes control where she can, through how much she eats and drinks. It was heartbreaking to read at certain points, but Rachel was strong, and never gave up, and even though she is simply a fictional character, I am happy for her and for women irl all around the world who conquer their inner demons. That aside, the only problem I had with this entire book was really just the mention of demisexual, which if you look up, is not a sexuality but a common trait found in practically all humans. That was a miner issue but I had to put it out there; anyways, adored the book and I just might read more by this author.

I agree with a previous review saying it was a little short on detail. I wanted more. But a nice way to spend a weekend morning.

I wish it had been longer and more detailed somehow. You kind of had to read between the lines. I'm somewhat dense so i had to read it twice. Actually that's a testament to how much i enjoyed it. I wanted more.
