Romeo and Juliet were not the last of the ill-fated loves. Rosethorn Blood is a fresh illustration of how cultural differences and tradition are obstacles that can be too difficult to surmount. Alex Bowden falls deeply in love with Priya Kapoor, despite her protests that her strict Indian family will never allow her to be with an African-American man. Priya soon weakens to Alex while she is dating Mohan, an Indian her father would be more willing to accept. In time, Alex and Priya discover that race is not the only issue they must overcome, as secret trysts and distance prove to be more than either is prepared to handle. The love they share becomes as sweet as a rose, but the pain that accompanies it is as painful as its thorns.
