Sinopsis

A modern-day Muslim Pride and Prejudice for a new generation of love.

Ayesha Shamsi has a lot going on. Her dreams of being a poet have been set aside for a teaching job so she can pay off her debts to her wealthy uncle. She lives with her boisterous Muslim family and is always being reminded that her flighty younger cousin, Hafsa, is close to rejecting her one hundredth marriage proposal. Though Ayesha is lonely, she doesn't want an arranged marriage. Then she meets Khalid, who is just as smart and handsome as he is conservative and judgmental. She is irritatingly attracted to someone who looks down on her choices and who dresses like he belongs in the seventh century.

When a surprise engagement is announced between Khalid and Hafsa, Ayesha is torn between how she feels about the straightforward Khalid and the unsettling new gossip she hears about his family. Looking into the rumors, she finds she has to deal with not only what she discovers about Khalid, but also the truth she realizes about herself.

Review

Akhirnya baca juga! Seliweran di Goodreads. Masukin list want to read. Eh kesampean ada deals di Google Playbook. Di sinopsisnya disebutin Muslim version of Pride and Prejudice. Aku belum baca karya tersebut jadi nggak bisa mengiyakan/menolak.
Tokoh utamanya ada dua, yaitu Ayesha dan Khalid. Cerita diawali dengan Ayesha yang akhirnya mendapat pekerjaan sebagai guru pengganti. Tapi dia merasa nggak cocok. Jiwanya lebih ke penyair (dan mendeklamasikan). Usai jam kerja dia dan temannya (Clara) menuju ke Bella's. Lounge dimana dia sering mendeklamasikan puisi.
