The Big Day Synopsis

A funny, heartwarming and page-turning novel about a British-Asian mother and daughter, who clash over the plans for the bride's Big Day. Noor has no interest in getting married (much to the aunties' distress). Growing up she saw first-hand how divorce tears families apart... But then, she falls in love. Soon, Noor’s engaged and planning an intimate wedding that feels perfect for her and her fiancé Dan. But when Noor discovers her mother Leena also has grand plans for the Big Day, their once-close relationship starts to unravel. Noor can’t understand why Leena is determined to have an elaborate Desi celebration when their lives have been anything but traditional. And after a lifetime following other people’s dreams, Noor is determined not to back down. As Leena and Noor clash over every point on their to-do lists, it begins to look like there will be two weddings and only one bride. And when family secrets shake the women’s bond further, will there even be a wedding at all? Praise for Aliya Ali-Afzal: 'Uplifting and joyous... A refreshing new voice in commercial fiction' Cosmopolitan 'Warm, intelligent [...] and keeps up the tension right till the end' Sophie Kinsella 'A fresh take on domestic dynamics and moral dilemma' Clare Mackintosh 'I devoured this book' Sarah Pearse 'Tense, funny, poignant and very clever' Claire Douglas
