The Obscure Logic of the Heart

by Priya Basil - £13.99  Transworld Publishers Ltd (Black Swan) (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780552773850 | ISBN 10: 0552773859

A devoted daughter; a secret love; an impossible dilemma...
 
Lina has always been the apple of her father’s strict eye. When she meets Anil, a wealthy, cultured and decidedly liberal student of architecture from Kenya’s Asian community, the intensity of her feelings for someone so different takes her by surprise. She is political and he is not; she is of modest background and he is not; she is a Muslim and he is not...
 
While Lina’s parents still dream of a suitable boy for their eldest daughter, she engages in an intricate game of deceit to hide her blossoming relationship. When Lina’s mother chances upon a suitcase of their love letters, a moral chasm threatens to tear the family and the lovers apart.

"A searing love story ... burns and scorches with wry conviction about young love that refuses to say die."
(India Today)
"Priya has done a wonderful job of characterisation. Her description of the turmoil faced by people in love makes the book an interesting and satisfying read."
(New Woman)
