Jasmin and Getawork meet at Georgia State University, where both of them are studying for a master's degree.

She refuses to stop seeing Getawork and even threatens suicide if her family tries to end the relationship, and he vows to stay by her side. Facing intolerance and fear, the couple bravely defies the odds, clinging to their love when the world around them does nothing but point a censuring finger.

With their love hanging in the balance, Jasmin faces a decision she doesn't want to make. Will love be stronger than family loyalty? Love in Another Country weaves a tantalizing tale of forbidden love, prodigious enigmas and kinfolk fanaticism.
