Broken Verses

by Kamila Shamsie
£7.99   paperback  Bloomsbury (2006)

Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie Fourteen years ago Aasmaani's mother Samina, a blazing beauty and fearless activist, walked out of her house and was never seen again. Aasmaani refuses to belive she is dead and still dreams of her glorious return.
 
Now grown up and living in Karachi, Aasmaani receives what could be the longed-for proof that her mother is still alive. As she comes closer to the truth she is also irresistibly drawn to Ed, her aly and sparring partner, and the only person who can understand the profound hurt - and the profound love - that drives her.

"A richly woven novel... The voice that guides us around this world darts with wit and lightness in a way that is unique and often lovely."
(Guardian)
