Review of The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters by Nadiya Hussain
The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters by Nadiya Hussain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This delightful heart-warming story involves four sisters in an English village where they are the only Muslims and the only migrants from Bangladesh.
Bubblee wants to be an artist and lives in a flat in London. Mum an Dad do not approve. Mae is still at school and runs around filming everyone for her social media blogs, and Youtube. Farah, happily married just wants a baby. Fatima is desperate to pass her driving test and become a person in her own right and not just mum's best helper.
When Farah's husband is badly injured in a car crash the cracks split open and the sisters have to work their way to understanding each other and their family.
A well written amusing story written by a sympathetic author who makes her original characters 3D and lovable. A most pleasant and enjoyable read.
