The Obscure Logic of the Heart by Priya Basil
Two lives, two loves, and two faiths. Lina Mayur has always been the apple of her father's strict eye. When she meets Anil, a wealthy, cultured and decidedly liberal student of architecture from Kenya's Asian community, the intensity of her feelings for someone so different takes her by surprise. She is political and he is not; she is of modest background and he is not; she is a Muslim and he is not ...While Lina's parents still dream of a suitable boy for their eldest daughter, she engages in an intricate game of deceit to hide her blossoming relationship. When Lina's mother comes upon a hidden suitcase of their love letters, a moral chasm as big as the African continent Lina is determined to save begins to carve open her heart.
ReviewsWhen it comes to duplicity and intrigue, Goddard is second to none.
