Beautiful and intelligent Christina von Hoisdorf is on a career high, she is the youngest tenured Professor of Sociology at the New York University, with several books and guest lectureship offers under her belt. But little does she know that a chance encounter at a West Village cafe will turn her life upside-down, when she meets the dashing and handsome Andalip, an investment banker from New Delhi. Andalip offers to buy her a coffee and soon after that they fall in love.
As their relationship progresses towards marriage, Christina suddenly finds herself remapping her life, leaving New York to land in the hustle and bustle of India for an Indo - German wedding. But a series of cross-cultural misunderstandings are in the offing-from delayed flights and disastrous wedding invites to stolen wedding jewelry and Andalip's grandmother's 'heart attack' and the two find themselves struggling to maintain their relationship, as well as their own cultural identities. Will Andalip and Christina's love survive? Or will Andalip's grandmother's firm belief-of never mixing cultures when it comes to choosing a spouse-ring true for them as well?

The book will appeal to the romantic at heart.
The cross-cultural love story will appeal to the global citizen.
The various twists and turns in the story make this an engrossing read.
