You must take some time and fall in love with the characters of Nafisa Haji's debut novel about Saira Qader, a rebellious journalist and a Muslim-American of Indo-Pakistani descent, and her family members, each with their own hopes and dreams. This is a rich novel, full of joys and sorrows, laughter and tears, rebellion and tenderness. -- Sina Herkelrath, Kepler's Books & Magazine, Menlo Park, CA

Description


A free-spirited and rebellious Muslim-American of Indo-Pakistani descent, willful, intelligent Saira Qader rejected the constricting notions of family, duty, obligation, and fate, choosing instead to become a journalist, making the world her home. But when tragedy strikes, throwing Saira's life into turmoil, the woman who circled the globe to uncover the details of other lives must confront the truths of her own. In need of understanding, she looks to the stories of those who came before--her grandparents, a beloved aunt, her mother and father. As Saira discovers the hope, pain, joy, and passion that defined their lives, she begins to face what she never wanted to admit: that choice is not always our own, and that faith is not merely an intellectual preference.
