It begins in 1952. Ten-year-old Abdullah and his younger sister, Pari, are everything to each other. What happens to them, at the despairing hand of their father, will test the unshakable bonds of family and irrevocably change not just their own lives, but those of multiple generations. The novel explores how families nurture, wound, betray, honour and sacrifice one another; and how often we are surprised about the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most.
