The Golden Legend by Nadeem Aslam

$5.00 Regular price $12.00

When shots ring out on the Grand Trunk Road, Nargis's life begins to crumble around her. Her husband, Massud--a fellow architect--is caught in the cross fire and dies before she can confess her greatest secret to him. Now under threat from a powerful military intelligence officer, who demands that she pardon her husband's American killer, Nargis fears that the truth about her past will soon be exposed. For weeks someone has been broadcasting people's secrets from the minaret of the local mosque, and, in a country where even the accusation of blasphemy is a currency to be bartered, the mysterious broadcasts have struck fear in Christians and Muslims alike.

Against this background of violence and intimidation, two outsiders - the young Christian woman, Helen, and the mysterious Irman from Kashmir - try to find an island of calm in which their love can grow.
