butterfly-seasonToday I have the pleasure to introduce a charming novel, a romance from a new promising, female author from Pakistan: Natasha Ahmed. Here is the plot summary, my review is to follow soon. I can’t wait to get my teeth into this, not just because of my personal liking of cross-cultural novels but also because of the not so often heard female voice and perspective from that region of Asia.
 
On her first holiday in six years, Rumi is expecting to relax and unwind. But when she is set up by her long-time friend, she doesn’t shy away from the possibilities. Ahad, a charming, independent, self-made man, captures her imagination, drawing her away from her disapproving sister, Juveria. 

Faced with sizzling chemistry and a meeting of the minds, Ahad and Rumi find themselves deep in a relationship that moves forward with growing intensity. But as her desire for the self-assured Ahad grows, Rumi struggles with a decision that will impact the rest of her life. 

Confronted by her scandalized sister, a forbidding uncle and a society that frowns on pre-marital intimacy, Rumi has to decide whether to shed her middle-class sensibilities, turning her back on her family, or return to her secluded existence as an unmarried woman in Pakistan. 

We follow Rumi from rainy London to a sweltering Karachi, as she tries to take control of her own destiny.
