Description
Love is a battlefield when a young British medic and an American soldier confront Afghanistan's fog of war.

In war- Torn Afghanistan, a girl walks right into a hail of bullets: Elinor watches it with her own eyes. But when the young British army medic risks the line of fire to rescue her, the Afghani girl is gone. An American lieutenant offers to helpElinor find the child. But in all the confusion, when coalition troops must maintain a fragile peace among tribal groups while combatting insurgents and the Taliban, can Ben be trusted? Elinor came to Afghanistan with the hope of changinghearts and minds: What she discovers makes her question everything she ever believed about love and war.

A war thriller. A cross-cultural love story with an undercurrent of magic realism. A powerful debut set in modern-day, battle-scarred Afghanistan. This is Torn .
