Longlisted for the Booker Prize, the suspenseful and
heartbreaking story of an immigrant family driven to pit
love against loyalty, that builds to “one of the most
memorable final scenes…in a novel this century.” (New
York Times Book Review)
Isma is free. After years of watching out for her younger
siblings in the wake of their mother’s death, she’s accepted
an invitation from a mentor in America that allows her to
resume a dream long deferred. But she can’t stop worrying
about Aneeka, her beautiful, headstrong sister back in
London, or their brother, Parvaiz, who’s disappeared in
pursuit of his own dream, to prove himself to the dark
legacy of the jihadist father he never knew. When he
resurfaces half a globe away, Isma’s worst fears are confirmed.
Then Eamonn enters the sisters’ lives. Son of a powerful
political figure, he has his own birthright to live up to—or
defy. Is he to be a chance at love? The means of Parvaiz’s
salvation? Suddenly, two families’ fates are inextricably,
devastatingly entwined, in this searing novel that asks:
What sacrifices will we make in the name of love?
