What I enjoyed most about the book was the amount of information it left me saddled with after I finished reading it.

Stars from the borderless sea

What is true love? Who are soulmates? Can love be defined by the constructs of society and convention? Can an affair rescue a marriage? Can true love ever tear people apart? Two college mates fall in love, only to be separated-their love stays steady, though they meet just twice in forty years. A close-knit family, shadows from the past, a lingering suspicion, and a relationship put to the test. An emotionally unavailable husband, a hurt wife; and an affair that redeems and transforms. Three strong women, and their journeys. And love, as mature and strong as them. In these times of speed dating, hook-ups, and break-ups, Stars from the Borderless Sky, a collection of three riveting stories, takes an unconventional, honest, empathetic look at that most universal of human emotions—love.
