fiction a-z

East Pakistan, 1971 - a country on the brink of war and a family that is about to change for ever. Rehana Haque is throwing a party for her children in her rose-filled garden. Beyond the garden walls the city buzzes with excitement over recent elections. But no one could ever imagine what the coming days and months would bring - the fever, the hope, the faith and the heartbreaking choices that everyone must make, including Rehana. Set against the backdrop of the Bangladesh War of Independence, A Golden Age is a gripping novel of revolution, passion and unexpected heroism.
