Read full description of the books:
Karim e Raheen crescono insieme come fratello e sorella, legati da un'empatia che non ha bisogno di parole. Attorno a loro i conflitti etnici disgregano il Pakistan e quelli tra i genitori di Karim disgregano la sua famiglia. Karim si trasferisce a Londra. Anni dopo il matrimonio di una comune amica fa rincontrare Karim e Raheen, ormai adulti, nella caotica e turbolenta città in cui sono cresciuti insieme. Scopriranno che il tempo e gli avvenimenti li hanno cambiati, ma immutato è il legame che li unisce. Anche se ora ha cambiato nome.
