A commendable work by the author. The storytelling is impressive and deep and you can visualize the whole story in front of your eyes. It’s like living a second life in the mind of the author. The story hooks you from the first page till the end. The cover is apt and beautiful.
Invisible Ties is a story of a girl Noor. Noor spent most of his childhood in the company of household helpers and caretakers. Her secret companion is an antique jade mirror she stole from her mother’s collection. Turns of events and familial pressure made her submit to her mother’s wish to marry Meekaal Kalim and start a new life in Singapore, reluctantly.
Trapped in a loveless marriage, Noor finds succor in studying psychotherapy to heal others. Bound in cultural values she looks for new ways to find peace in her life. Where her quest will take her, is the story.
The thing which impressed me the most is this is no ordinary or regular story of a girl and his journey and the way it is told is impressive and praiseworthy. When you will read the story you can actually read the mind of the girl; Noor. The impeccable style of narrating the human emotions makes it a must read.
The heart of the story is the narrative style and the brain of the story is its plotline. The writing style is fluid and graceful. If you want to read a beautifully written contemporary fiction and a story that can drive you. Pick this book. It has everything a reader look for in a book to escape from the reality of the daily life. Nadya will make you lose yourself with her vivid writing.
Nadya A.R. began writing in her early twenties. She is a psychotherapist and regularly contributes articles related to psychotherapy and conducts workshops, seminars and talks, both in Pakistan and Singapore. This is her second novel.
