Book : Invisible Ties
Author : Nadya A. R.
As Karachi burned in the 1990s, the painfully shy Noor Kamal found refuge in an antique jade mirror stolen from Daisy, her social butterfly mother. One fateful day, the violence hits home as a motley crew of burglars storm the Kamal residence, killing Joseph, the faithful driver who tried to shield Noor and kidnapping Daisy in the process.
Traumatized by the turn of events and succumbing to familial pressure, Noor reluctantly agrees to start life afresh in Singapore as the wife of Meekaal Kalim, an investment banker. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Noor finds succour in studying psychotherapy.
Her attempt to heal others brings her close to Ella, her neighbour and Jake, a handsome American who is struggling to deal with his emotional breakdown. As she tries to exorcise ghosts from the past and break free from the shackles, where will Noor’s longing for love take her? Would she be able to liberate herself from her strong cultural values and ties?
A saga of love and trials, against a rich contrasting background, Invisible Ties is sure to appeal to the readers.
To begin with, the cover is brilliantly designed. It is just so beautifully designed. This book is like when you see it for the first time, you know you have to buy this book.
The storyline for this book is really good. The pace is little slow in the starting but then after few chapters it becomes interesting. Language is simple, concept is different, overall a very great read. I loved how the character of Noor is portrayed and her journey shows the struggle which can inspire many people.
Overall, this book is surely going to be my favourite.
