A Place for Us

518f99tNeoLI eagerly waited for A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza as I read excellent reviews from multiple sources. And, while I liked it, I didn’t love it (a summer theme). It’s the story of an Indian family brought back together for a daughter’s wedding. The story bounces back and forth in time and incidents in the family’s life. I found the bouncing somewhat confusing – you had to reorient each time and there were no dates to help – and didn’t really come to like any of the characters that much. I suspect I had blown this one up too much in my mind and was, therefore, let down.
