Judy (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejudyg) How about The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri?

I've really enjoyed other books by her that I've read, so have been hoping to get to this one.

I nominate The Shadow of the Crescent Moon by Fatima Bhutto I've never read this author so another leap in the dark! here's the blurb:

The Shadow of the Crescent Moon
by Fatima Bhutto (Goodreads Author)
3.33 of 5 stars 3.33 · rating details · 183 ratings · 46 reviews
Fatima Bhutto's stunning debut begins and ends one rain swept Friday morning in Mir Ali, a small town in Pakistan's Tribal Areas close to the Afghan border.

Three brothers meet for breakfast. Soon after, the eldest, recently returned from America, hails a taxi to the local mosque. The second, a doctor, goes to check in at his hospital. His troubled wife does not join the family that morning. No one knows where Mina goes these days. And the youngest, the idealist, leaves for town on a motorbike. Seated behind him is a beautiful, fragile girl whose life and thoughts are overwhelmed by the war that has enveloped the place of her birth.

Three hours later their day will end in devastating circumstances.
