The title of the book is very apt, literally and metaphorically. The book follows the journey of a Muslim woman’s struggle for creating an identity in a world where a woman herself is a non-entity… There are two of looking at the narrative. One, how right from her childhood Zarina challenges the norms and rules of the society prevalent in her time. Another perspective would be how Zarina became a crusader of her own cause.
“Coming-of-age story of not one but three generations… holds promise and is highly inspiring in every aspect.”
