A Place For Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza

This beginning makes me wonder: why would Amar consider leaving his sister’s wedding? Did she invite him and expect him to not show up? Are they on speaking terms? What has happened throughout their relationship as siblings?

I’m not very far in to this novel, but I can already tell I will enjoy it. I love stories that delve deeply into identity, family dynamics and relationships.

The first novel from Sarah Jessica Parker’s new imprint, SJP for Hogarth, A Place for Us is a deeply moving and resonant story of love, identity and belonging.
