A girl named Nanzeen is married to an educated person named Chanu in Britian. Although Nanzeen's father is rich, he thinks that his daughter would bring his wealth down. In Britain, Nanzeen met many people such as an old woman maned Mrs. Islam, a suducing like man named Karim and many others each playing a part to shaped her thinking and as a person herself.
As a Muslim, she is devoted to god and uses her religion to overcome all her obstacles such as Mrs. Islam a usury who you could never pay enough and Karim, the one who begins an affair with Nanzeen. At the end, Nanzeen discovers that everything is possible.
I kind of find this book confusing paritially because of the time switching going back and forth. However, just by reading it, I can tell that its tehme is rich and probably rereading it will enhance the idea of it. In addition to taht, I conclude taht the book tells us that life is hard, but unless you struggle, nothing is impossible to overcome.
