My Sister’s Perfect Husband follows the story of Laila and her older sister Mina. As Mina is 18, her Pashtun family feel it’s time they found her a husband. They introduce her to endless suitable young men, but Mina scowls at each one, putting them off as much as she can. Mina’s family are in despair. No one will ever want to marry her! So Laila sets about finding the perfect husband for her sister…
If you haven’t read this heart-warming novel yet, there’s plenty of time before eviction starts. (At only 63 pages it is a quick read!)
