Witnesses to a mystery on the battlefield, a British medic and an American Navy SEAL confront Afghanistan's fog of war.

In war-torn Afghanistan, a girl walks right into a hail of bullets: Elinor watches it with her own eyes. The young British army medic risks the line of fire to rescue her, only to realize the girl is gone.

To find the missing, mysterious child, Elinor enlists the help of an American Navy SEAL. But in all the confusion, with coalition troops fighting every day to maintain a fragile peace, does Ben have something to hide?

Elinor came to Afghanistan with the hope of changing hearts and minds: What she's about to discover will make her question everything she ever believed about love and war.

A war thriller. A cross-cultural love story with an undercurrent of magic realism. A powerful debut set in modern-day, battle-scarred Afghanistan. This is TORN.

From Torn:

I look over my shoulder and there, on the side of the road, a flash of movement catches my eye. A wind has come from nowhere and raised a swirling dust eddy. From the midst of it a young Afghan girl emerges. She looks about fourteen, exquisitely pretty with piercing pale green eyes, and she is wearing a sun-bleached blue dress embroidered with flowers. Her black, tangled hair lifts in strands and wraps around her face as she walks, but she raises a delicate hand and pulls it away from her lips. I didn't even notice her approach. She could be a suicide bomber or anything.

And my gun is lying on the ground between us.
