A NovelBook - 2018
Inspired by the 1970 Bhola Cyclone, in which half a million people perished overnight, this seamlessly interweaves five love stories that, together, chronicle fifty years of Bangladeshi history. The structure of this riveting novel mimics the storm itself - building to a series of revelatory and moving climaxes as it explores the many ways in which families love, betray, honour, and sacrifice for one another.
