Chasing A Boomerang is a work of fiction in the cultural drama, slice of life, and romantic drama subgenres, penned by author Kay Alahakoon. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. In this charming and heartfelt tale about a displaced young woman trying to carve a new life for herself in a strange land, we first meet Ishani Gamage at the airport, embarking on connecting flights to leave Sri Lanka and eventually ending up in Sydney. Grieving a sudden and tragic loss, Ishani finds Aussie culture to be a short sharp shock, but her new life as Issy is all she has. Until a new man arrives in her life, and Issy wonders if he’s really worth all the chasing.
Author Kay Alahakoon has crafted a novel that is both charming and uplifting in the strength of its main character but also harrowing and poignant in the bigger picture it paints for the millions of displaced people around the world who have to rebuild their lives when fleeing from violence. There were so many scenes of culture shock for Issy, from learning about weddings and relationships to sharing her food and values with those that she meets. Her relationship with Jason was well played to explore the complexities between the beliefs and expectations that Issy grew up with versus Jason’s easy-going nature. I really enjoyed the non-traditional ways in which they found connections and didn’t try to change one another once they’d discovered the other person’s authentic self. Overall, Chasing A Boomerang is a highly engaging read that fans of cross-cultural romance and realistic drama are sure to love.
