Clashing Cultures Amongst Family Customs


NEW YORK, NY –When a first generation Indian-American girl named Monica falls in love with Brandon, an American and a Christian, her mother believes that this will put an end to Bengali traditions for future generations. In Gita Audhya’s All Those Tears We Can’t See, published by Austin Macauley, we see how a clash in cultures greatly affects Monica and her happiness.

Although Monica loves her parents and respects their beliefs and customs wholeheartedly, there is a cultural gap that never seems to fill.

To understand her mother better, Monica takes a job opportunity in India. There, she falls in love with the country, its traditions and religion. However, tragedy befalls her.

What will happen now? Can she go back to America and share her newfound love with her mother and Brandon? Will she even get the chance?

“It is a story that puts life in India and the USA under a microscope so that we see clearly the differences between beliefs and way of life in each country and begin to understand the challenges some people face in assimilating into a new country while still retaining one’s culture and beliefs,” says Audhya.

A devastatingly realistic emotional rollercoaster that readers won’t want to get off, All Those Tears We Can’t See, will have an impact resonating with readers as each character handles their challenges in a unique way.

All Those Tears We Can’t See, published by Austin Macauley, was released on October 31, 2018. Price: $13.95, ISBN: 9781641821933. It is available in Amazon, Barnes & Noble as well as other bookstores around the country. Review copies are available upon request.
