Normally when you mix a recovering anorexic and a green card marriage you get… oh wait those aren’t usually two things you mix. However, Lorelie Brown did just that. She flawlessly merged together a sexually straight (and recovering anorexic) woman, with barely any family to speak of, with that of an Indian lesbian woman with a huge family.

Rachel believes she’s straight even when she nonchalantly tells Pari that she’ll marry her. Caught off guard, Rachel is presented with the opportunity to marry Pari for a sake of convenience for them both. Pari needs a green card and Rachel needs help paying her student loans. Soon Rachel begins to question her sexuality and it seems Pari wants nothing to do with her experiment.

“Far From Home” is a wonderful story of another aspect of sexuality that isn’t often covered in works of fiction. I am always pleased to read lesbian fiction, especially when it doesn’t involve a dramatic coming out story. Read along as Lorelie Brown takes you into the world of two women who couldn’t be more different and how a marriage of convenience proves to be life altering for them both.

I’d also like to mention this is book one in the Belladonna Ink series. I have reviewed book two and can tell you that these stories work as standalone books.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
