Summary Note Fourteen years ago, Samina, blazing beauty and fearless activist, walked out of her house and was never seen again. Aasmaani, frequently abandoned by her mother, still dreams of her glorious return. Fifteen years ago, Samina's closest freind Shehnaz Saeed, darling of the theatre and the small screen, gave up her career for her son Ed. Now he is helping her make a triumphant comeback. Sixteen years ago, the Poet, subversive and brilliant, love of Samina's life, was found mysteriously murdered. In present-day Karachi, Aasmaani receives what could be the longed-for proof that her mother is still alive. As she draws closer to the truth she is irresistibly drawn, too, to Ed, her ally and sparring partner, and the only person who can understand the profound hurt - and the profound love - which drives her.
