This novel, first published in 1951, is set in Hyderabad in the early part of the twentieth century. It is the story of a young high-class Muslum woman, who is forced to marry and thus put aside her natural inclination to read and write and lead an independent life. It evokes a period of civic unrest that preceded Indian independence. This new edition includes a critical and historical foreword by the author's daughter.
