Tingling with the tangled complexities of a family whose members are scattered wide around the globe, Nilopar Uddin’s debut novel, The Halfways, will grip and charm readers who like stories driven by relatable real-life characters and problems, with a generous sprinkling of compassion, honesty and observational detail.

To the outside world, sisters Nasrin and Sabrina are winning at life. Sabrina works in finance in New York, while Nasrin lives in London with her husband and child, with a stack of engineering accolades behind her. But, as their outwardly perfect lives are beginning to unravel in the cities the sisters have made home, back at the family home and restaurant in the Welsh Beacons everything changes when their father dies and his will-reading reveals a devastating family secret.

While their mother gets on with things, the sisters struggle, for the revelation leads them to question everything they founded their identities on, testing family bonds, forcing them to reconsider what sisterhood means, what it means to belong, and what it means to forgive.
