About The Book
Three separate stories.
One terrifying secret ties them together.
Maya is even pricklier on the inside than she is on the outside, but that’s what having a chronic depressive for a mother and a sociopath for a father can do to you.
Sahere is stunning by any standards and knows what she wants, but when it comes to finding a balance between her Britishness and her Pakistaniness, she finds herself torn.
Rani’s standing in the community and her honour is of paramount importance. She will go the extra mile to protect it; irrespective of the cost.
As if being female and Pakistani isn’t challenging enough. Add remorseless domestic violence, psychological abuse, an arranged marriage and an eternal ‘edge of your seat’ love story, just for good measure.
At its very core The House with The Orange Gates is about the need to survive and unwavering courage in the face of insurmountable odds. It unpicks the nuances which commonly exist at the heartbeat of every culture and society; unquestionably judging and presiding over how lives should be lived.
This is more than a story about three women from a foreign culture. It is a story which transcends boundaries and speaks to every woman who has faced & overcome adversity.
