And Laughter Fell From the Sky by Jyotsna Sreenivasan...Review & Give Away!

This summer I have been doing so much reading. I have all but ditched television in the evenings in favor of a good book.  I have read so many super ones lately. The latest?  And Laughter Fell from the Sky by Jyotsna Sreenivasan.  Here is the scoop...

Still living at home despite a good career and financial independence, beautiful and sophisticated Rasika has always been the dutiful daughter. With her twenty-sixth birthday fast approaching, she agrees to an arranged marriage, all while trying to hide from her family her occasional dalliances with other men.
Abhay is everything an Indian-American son shouldn't be. Having spent his postcollege years living in a commune, he now hops from one dead-end job to another, brooding over what he really wants to do with his life.
Old family friends, Rasika and Abhay seem to have nothing in common, yet when the two reconnect by chance, sparks immediately fly. Abhay loves Rasika, but he knows her family would never approve. Rasika reluctantly accepts she has feelings for Abhay, but can she turn her back on the family rules she has always tried so hard to live by? The search to find answers takes Abhay and Rasika out of their native Ohio to Oregon and India, where they find that what they have together might just be something worth fighting for. 

I really enjoyed this book. I found the story line compelling and rich with culture.  Raskika definitely did some questionable things (like pretty much leading a double life!) but when faced by the overwhelming demands of her culture and lifestyle I am not sure what I would have done either.  This was a great book filled with love, family and relationships.  And Laughter Fell From the Sky should not be missed....a great read!  Pick up your copy today on Amazon....

As a graduate student, the only time I really get to read for pleasure is over the summer. But during the summer months, I read for at least an hour every day!
