A Australian woman works in Kashmir in the post 9 11 era and finds herself in the middle of problems between Pakistan and India. Jorja is an Australian consultant working within the Ministry of Education in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-administered Kashmir, post 9-11, during a tense period in Pakistan and India's dramatic history.

Jorja is caught in a world where the boundaries between friendship, love and isolation are inextricably entwined. To the locals, Jorja is the perception of exotic foreign allure, the prospect of sponsorship and money, and an avenue to escape hardship. For Jorja, as she tries to maintain a long-distance relationship with Denny, who remains in Australia, Kashmir forces her to balance her own conflicting and divergent emotions, often precariously, but always with an impact of profound proportions.

Kashmir on a Knife-Edge will transport the reader into a picturesque, yet troubled, Kashmir caught between two raging rivers and two conflicting nations.

Martina Nicolls lives in Australia but draws on her own experiences in her travels around the world. She is an international development worker in developing countries, advising on child labor, governance, education, and health; and evaluating donor programs overseas to ensure accountability and transparency.
