Love, life, laughter and all that is in between.
The Fragments Universe currently stretches across two novels.
The first, the titular novel, is concerned with loss and bereavement. Two aspects of life that we, as a society, don’t talk about. Two aspects, that are very often swept under the carpet and at times, with really quite painful consequences. Fragments contains six inter-linked stories that map what happens when loss and bereavement tear up universes. Whilst there is sadness, there is a hope and the capacity of humans to mend.
Kangana follows a character-Gorbind Phalla- and tells of his life before Fragments. Here, we sample a not so straight forward romance. A romance, set in the midlands, that shows that love isn’t always plain-sailing. Especially, if you have family members that also need to be taken care of.
Life starts and life ends. In between we form relationships and friendships. We have husbands, wives, sons, daughters and we mustn’t forget pets. Memories form that shape who we are and what we do. Only for death to cast it all askew. What we know becomes nothing by fragments, torn up and thrown to the winds. The Anand’s lose a wife and mother, Matthew is lost without his grandmother, Daniel loses the man he loved, Michael wonders about having children and Maya is a mother bereaved. Within are six inter-related stories explore what happens when the universe as we know it implodes and entirely. Grief is a journey to be travelled by them with emotions to be experienced as their lives are changed. Whilst they feel alone they are all connected and these are their stories. Family, friends and even our pets cannot escape when it comes to the footprint that is left by death.
There is no such thing as a straight forward romance.
Sometimes when you think you are falling for one person, you are really falling in love with everyone else around them too.
Gorbind’s family are his whole world, even if they are far from normal. His kid brother needs looking after and his Grandmother just wants him to find happiness.
His whole world changes when he meets Padmi. Life gets more interesting as she changes Gorbind’s universe completely. Romance with Padmi is anything but straightforward.
