‘I loved this sweeping family drama. Moving and unforgettable’
Sarah Morgan, Sunday Times bestselling author
‘A moving, atmospheric and engrossing family saga. Its characters will stay with you long after you have finished the book’
Deepa Anappara, author of Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line
‘This novel is an absolute beauty, and already one of my favourites... In The Halfways, Nilopar has quite genuinely taken my breath away’
Jenny Ashcroft, author of Beneath a Burning Sky
Nasrin and Sabrina are two sisters, who on the face of things, live successful and enviable lives in London and New York. When their father, Shamsur suddenly dies, they rush to be with their mother at the family home and restaurant in Wales, and reluctantly step back into the stifling world of their childhood.
When Shamsur’s will is read, a devastating secret is revealed that challenges all that people thought and loved about him. It also profoundly changes the lives and identities of the sisters, and creates an irreparable family rift...
Moving between London, Wales, New York and Bangladesh, this is an epic family drama that spans over four decades. A story of mothers and daughters, of fathers and daughters, of sisterhood, it is a tale that explores belonging, family and what makes forgiveness and redemption possible.
