Read in December, 2011

** spoiler alert ** Story of American woman writer, Saira, of Pakistani descent who travels the world with gay photographer cousin (disowned by his old-fashioned, wealthy familY) who grew up in London. Families have secrets and her family has some doozies - grandfather who left her beautiful mother to marry a young English 'hippie' type and raise 3 children with her. spoiler alert - day after 9-11, her sister (who wears a hijab) is shot by unknown assailant in front of her daughter ... then we readers find out that Saira's niece is actually Saira's daughter by an older Pakistani family friend who is also a writer/journalist.

My wish is that Nafisa Haji writes a sequel to this book.
