Book Review: Invisible Ties by Nadya A.R.

36260903BLURB

As Karachi burned in the 1990s, the painfully shy Noor Kamal found refuge in an antique jade mirror stolen from Daisy, her social butterfly mother. One fateful day, the violence hits home as a motley crew of burglars storm the Kamal residence, killing Joseph, the faithful driver who tried to shield Noor and kidnapping Daisy in the process.
Traumatized by the turn of events and succumbing to familial pressure, Noor reluctantly agrees to start life afresh in Singapore as the wife of Meekaal Kalim, an investment banker. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Noor finds succour in studying psychotherapy.

Her attempt to heal others brings her close to Ella, her neighbour and Jake, a handsome American who is struggling to deal with his emotional breakdown. As she tries to exorcise ghosts from the past and break free from the shackles, where will Noor’s longing for love take her? Would she be able to liberate herself from her strong cultural values and ties?

A saga of love and trials, against a rich contrasting background, Invisible Ties is sure to appeal to the readers.

It's all about an antique jade mirror.

The cover was the thing that attracted me to this book. I didn't read the blurb and straightway dived into the book. I didn't know what to expect from this book but 'Invisible Ties' didn't disappoint me.

The story is so different and unique. Nothing like I've ever read before. It's so beautifully written with a gripping storyline that the reader literally can't put the book down.

I loved everything about this book. let it be cover, plot or characters. This book is lovable. You just can't unlove it. It's intense, passionate and everything else.

'Invisible Ties' is a story of a young girl, Noor and her struggle of self-discovery. Noor spent most of her childhood accompanied by caretakers and household helpers. Noor has a secret friend and it's an antique jade mirror which she stole from her mother's collection.

Under the family pressure, she agrees to marry a man named Meekaal Kalim and the couple moves to Singapore. But as the time passes she realises that her husband does not consider her a life partner but a mere servant. He does not have any feelings for her, no love, no passion. And she begins to question her self worth. She begins questioning Meekaal's real intentions to marry her.

Noor is confused about her marriage. In her confusion she meets her neighbour, a childless chinese woman, Ella, and a handsome American, Jake, who has lost his job and has his own issues. Mingling with them, gives Noor a new vision. She begins to take charge in her marriage. But where will her life take her? Will she be succumbed to her loveless marriage? Will she ever find the love she craves for?

This is a story of a girl finding herself, accepting herself and loving herself. This is a story of self love and self respect. 

Final Verdict- I totally recommend reading this one. It's just that good.
