Amjad cradles his baby daughter in the middle of the night. He has no time to mourn his wife's death. Saahil and Zahra, his two small children, are relying on him. Amjad vows to love and protect them always. Years later, Saahil and his best friend, Ehsan, have finished university and are celebrating with friends. But when the night turns dangerous, its devastating effects will ripple through the years to come. Zahra's world is alight with politics and activism. But she is now her father's only source of comfort, and worries she'll never have time for her own aspirations. Life has taken her small family in different directions - will they ever find their way back to each other? The Family Tree is the moving story of a British Muslim family full of love, laughter and resilience as well as all the faults, mistakes and stubborn loyalties which make us human. ** 'A multi-generational story crafted with warmth... an engaging debut.' Vaseem Khan 'Provides a much needed voice for characters who have been drastically affected by the headlines throughout an emotionally wrought narrative.' Magic Radio 'A moving story.' Bella
