A cross-continental love story: a brilliantly observed novel about the exhilarations and complications of getting, and staying, wed.
Amina Mazid is 24 when she leaves Bangladesh for New York, and for George Stillman, the husband who wooed her online. It's a 21st-century romance that echoes ancient traditions. And though George falls for Amina because she doesn't "play games", each is hiding something from the other. It is only when they put an ocean between them that Amina and George will discover whether they have a future.
Travelling from American suburbs to the cities of South Asia, The Newlyweds is a tour de force - a novel as rich with misunderstandings as it is with unlikely connections.
