In this fresh, captivating audiobook, narrator Ariana Delawari gives a bright voice to 26-year-old Leila Abid, an American-born Indian Muslim who has been given three months to find a husband--or her parents will find one for her. As naïve Leila wades through months of dreadful dates, well-meaning aunties, and an overbearing matriarch, Delawari draws in listeners with her distinctive accents and simple characterizations. She gracefully captures Leila's turmoil as she struggles to find the delicate balance between following cultural expectations and choosing her own desires. With smooth enunciation and a steady voice, Delawari skillfully sets an even pace and leaves listeners eager to discover whom Leila will choose in the end.
