A Golden Age
Rehana Haque awakes on a beautiful morning in March 1971. That day she will throw a party for her son and daughter, almost grown up, in the garden of the house she has built. Beyond her garden walls, the city of Dhaka is buzzing with change and excitement after recent elections. But change brings chaos, for this is East Pakistan, soon to be called Bangladesh. War is on the horizon, and Rehana will be faced with a heartbreaking dilemma as she struggles to keep her family safe.
A deeply engaging debut novel set against Bangladesh’s War for Independence, A Golden Age tells a radiant story of passion and revolution, hope and unexpected heroism.
