Aysha Kala narrates in a crisp, clear voice that easily draws listeners into the complex life of Faiza, a Pakistani-Muslim woman living in a posh London neighborhood. When Faiza's husband, Tom, loses his job, Faiza is forced to weave a web of lies to keep him from discovering that she has spent their emergency fund. Listeners become privy to Faiza's background and the ways she has had to create facades to fit in and please others. While Kala's voice sounds too young for Faiza, her pace and tone in differentiating characters will keep listeners engaged. Although there is plenty of tension and suspense, the novel is less domestic thriller than contemporary fiction illustrating issues of race, religion, and cultural and economic biases.
