Book Title: 3, Zakia Mansion
Desc:

Shaheen’s world turns upside down the year she turns nineteen. Thrust abruptly into adulthood by a string of unimaginable events, she witnesses the gradual fraying of the family fabric. Even as she grapples with new realities and struggles to make a different life for herself—first as a wife, then as a mother—contentment continues to prove elusive. Hurtling from one heartbreak to another, she steels herself to live with her sense of loss, in the process distancing herself from everything that is real and precious. It is only when her young daughter is estranged from her and when the gentle Manas comes into her life that Shaheen comes to terms with the burden of her memories, realizing the need to let go of her troubled inheritance and accept the past so that she can embrace the present. Gouri Dange’s debut novel creates a poignant portrait of family betrayals, the comfort of strangers and the innate human desire to belong. 3, Zakia Mansion is a deeply felt meditation on the themes of drifting, dropping anchor in the wrong places and ultimately learning to journey on without maps.
