Who would have thought that a lesson in genetics could almost tear a family apart only to bring it together larger, stronger and more bonded than before.
Well you have to read Nafisa Haji’s “The Sweetness of Tears” to believe it.
A beautifully written story that explores the boundaries of faith that divide us and the bridges of humanity that bind us.

As adults or as teenagers who would understand the pain of the teenage girl who suddenly discovers that what she believed about her family all along was fabrication.

We would cheer Jo along on her journey of discovering her roots and as we do so, we would learn that sometimes when you really love someone, you have to let them go.

Ms Haji in her beautiful writing made me discover the humanity in a people (Pakistani) i had previously watched with cynicism.

It was a good book to curl up with.
