Good day everyone! Today I’ve got a spotlight on a book that sounds really good called What Tears Us Apart by Deborah Cloyed who I’ve hosted at the blog before. As usual I wish I had time to read it myself but unfortunately I don’t. It will be going on my wishlist for future reading though or maybe listening as there is an Audible edition as well. In the meantime I’d love to share with you what the book is about as well as offer up a copy for giveaway so be sure to check out the end of the post for that!
About What Tears Us Apart (from Harlequin MIRA)
Love lives in the most dangerous places of the heart
The real world. That’s what Leda desperately seeks when she flees her life of privilege to travel to Kenya. She finds it at a boys’orphanage in the slums of Nairobi. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for Ita, the charismatic and thoughtful man who gave up his dreams to offer children a haven in the midst of turmoil.
Their love should be enough for one another-it embodies the soul-deep connection both have always craved. But it is threatened by Ita’s troubled childhood friend, Chege, a gang leader with whom he shares a complex history. As political unrest reaches a boiling point and the slum erupts in violence, Leda is attacked…and forced to put her trust in Chege, the one person who otherwise inspires anything but.
In the aftermath of Leda’s rescue, disturbing secrets are exposed, and Leda, Ita and Chege are each left grappling with their own regret and confusion. Their worlds upturned, they must now face the reality that sometimes the most treacherous threat is not the world outside, but the demons within.
