About the book:
Hena has just informed her family she is calling off the wedding. This decision propels her to shed the heavy weight of her Pakistani-American parents' expectations and leave a promising career in medical marketing to pursue her lifelong passion for jewelry design. From beyond the grave, Hena's beloved late grandmother, Dadi Jaan-the inspiration behind Hena's creative spirit beckons to her to make the journey to her ancestral homeland of Pakistan and chase her dream.
Against the backdrop of the chaotic and colorful energy of Karachi, Pakistan and the mountainous hinterland of Balochistan, Hena encounters friendship, love, and crushing betrayal as she explores ways to create a jewelry-making business moored in centuries-old artisanal traditions.
Mausumbe Road is a coming-of-age story and a riveting suspense novel with an unexpected twist-inspired by the universal longing to find our own purposeful path.
