'Poignant' Guardian

'A gem of a novel' i

The remarkable debut novel from critically acclaimed writer Huma Qureshi: a poignant story of art and sisterhood, family, marriage and betrayal

Hana is a successful lawyer, with a perfect home and marriage. But she longs to be a mother, and her husband remains hesitant.

Mira, her younger sister, is stuck working at a local café, renting a room from a flatmate she hates. She dreams of a creative life, but just she can't find the right inspiration.

One night, Mira witnesses an argument between Hana and her husband. Their words spark something in her and she starts typing.

But what stories are ours to tell? And how much can be forgiven?
