FOR SIX YEARS I DIDN'T TALK about what happened.
Now I've written the whole story, complete and honest. It's a mix of love and pain. A very specific kind of love, which is the affection a woman feels for her as-yet unborn child. And a very specific pain, the result of losing a child in the womb.Karin Malhotra* arrives in Seattle with lots of dreams for "the perfect life." A job as a newspaper reporter in the heart of a gleaming city, at 28, she feels ready for anything. Except for a stunning miracle of fate that crumbles her picture. A sharp dose of reality spins her into "a long, loose dive" from which it takes two full years to resurface.
Since 2006, I've held in my heart a love story, unfinished. I wrote The Dive to honor that, and somehow, to complete it. (And if you are here because of something that's happening personally, I highly recommend the website AHeartbreakingChoice.com. Couldn't have written my book were it not for theirs.)
The Dive is published by Kismuth Books.
