Until We Meet Again in Jannah

$13.00

It has been a year since Saira was driven from Bangladesh, but the memories do not abate. These are strange lands, and from her vast London apartment, Saira peeks out at the streets, at the people, and at the grey English skies, so unlike the vivid oranges and purples of home. Though there are no bars on the windows, she is a prisoner here—a caged bird. How I longed to be that bird soaring high up in the sky, touching the clouds with not a burden in sight…


After a disastrous incident involving her beloved husband Omar, Saira spirals deeper into herself. She dreams once again of home: the village; the sunny vistas; her kind, sweet mother… and she remembers too the earth-shattering decision she made that night, the series of betrayals, the fury that drove her and her mother into exile. She thinks of Omar, of how at night’s end, dawn blossoms...


Saira has come a long way—and for what? Little does she realise, the roots of love go deeper than she ever suspected, and home is never far away.


Until We Meet Again… In Jannah is a moving and utterly human story of one woman’s defiance in the face of tradition. Saira’s journey of self-discovery is a testament to the binding powers of love and memory, and her tale is a must for lovers of contemporary and international fiction.
