Ammi, a pregnant 24-year-old, flees New Delhi with millions of Muslim migrants in the early hours of the 1947 Partition of India, clawing her way through a controversial caste system and into the heart of Lahori society. 

A family broken by betrayal. 
Two of Ammi's beloved sons immigrate to the United States and secretly marry dazzling, contemporary American brides. One bride converts to Islam. The other commits apostasy, the sin of all sins. 

Three women who stand to lose everything. 
The collision of two belief systems—two worlds—come to a head as Ammi, Carolyn, and Ivy fight to keep their own marriages, families, and futures secure.

This novel is really in a league of its own. I can't really compare it to anything I have read before. It is powerful with a great message. The writing style was easy to follow and really seemed to flow naturally. 

These women are all so different yet so strong and its a great look into marriages such as these. 

There is a bit of back and forth as it centers around multiple main characters and multiple stories and issues, but I think Amie Ali has done a great job of separating the three for the reader.
