This is a book of multiple story lines which are clumsily bolted together. Just too many 'issues'. Oppression of women, the moral problems of the muslim community,forced marriages,childhood abuse,sexual abuse of children, a love story, criminality and the effects on the family, a serial killer, homelessness.
I did kind of like reading it but just found that I wished she had concentrated on one story, it would have been enough to have written the story of the two main characters.
