Under the Same Stars

By Suzanne Fisher Staples

A young woman must choose between family, tradition and an unexpected love in this gripping novel set in Pakistan.

Shabanu, daughter of the windswept Cholistan desert, is the youngest of Rahim's four wives. Although her husband adores her, it is only in his rarely inhabited town house, away from the family home, that Shabanu and her daughter can escape the cruelty of the other wives. But there Shabanu falls dangerously in love with another man, and she must decide whether it is right to follow her heart.
