Review by pamjw
This is the story of Abdullah and his beloved sister Pari - torn apart by their fathers tough decision, and how their lives unfold.I found this book quite difficult to follow. Each chapter took a bit of getting in to. The story did evolve quite well, but to a rather predictable ending.
