The youngest of six daughters raised by a widowed mother, Meena is a young Indo-Canadian woman struggling to find her place in the world. She knows that the freedom experienced by others is beyond her reach. But unlike her older sisters, Meena refuses to accept a life dictated by tradition. Against her mother's wishes, she falls for a young man named Liam who asks her to run away with him. She must then make a painful choice--one that will lead to stunning and irrevocable consequences.

Heartbreaking and beautiful, Everything Was Good-bye is an unforgettable story about family, love, loss, and the struggle of living in two different cultural worlds.

"Everything was Good-bye" was not bad but it wasn't great, either. A story with too little plot, it was a romance smothered in molasses: sickly sweet and slow moving. Even the death scene was ho-hum; a case of manslaughter and not murder. There are better and more lively reads than this novel.
