Pearls of the past starts with Abdulla and Sangita, who met and fell in love in the first book, as they adapt to life under the ever-watchful eyes of his family - an endless source of potential conflict. Abdulla struggles to start a business, while Sangita struggles to find a place to fit in within the family. His young cousin, Luluwa is on the brink of womanhood and imagining the different directions her life could take, while Hind is in India working for the consulate far from the suffocating ties of her family, but ever watchful for potential problems arising from the independent nature of her job.
The author did a great job of making the conflict believable, intense, and at times insurmountable. It all comes together through an old family legend with its roots in India, and Luluwa is the key. The characters are well-drawn and interesting. And the setting gives us a view into a world rarely glimpsed by those in the West.
I loved this novel for its detailed family connections, conflict, and the love stories weaving their threads toward the conclusion.
I received an arc copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! I look forward to reading the next in the series.
Having read the first book, I was intrigued when the author reached out to me to know if I would be interested in reading this sequel and I am glad I said yes because the characters are more developed and their desires, ambitions, expectations all create an exciting drama.
Whereas in Love Comes Later the choices made by the characters were only touching the surface of their lives, in this book, the consequences of their choices come to life. I was impressed by Sangita's tenacity and Abdulla's uncertainty and struggle to remain loyal to his desires and his family's expectations.
It's safe to say that the plot thickens here.
I would recommend this novel and her others to anyone who loves reading about tales in Qatar.
And yes, I am now waiting for the next novel to come out.
