Inaya – the daughter who knows her father to be dead.

Imaad – the son who has persistently betrayed and disappointed his father.

Zahra – in search of the man who saved her childhood and protected her mother.

Salmaan – An autistic youngster who finds it difficult to navigate himself in the big, wide world.


Inaya – The news of her father being alive shatters her existence completely as she is left with an air ticket and a damning decision. 

Salmaan – Her brother, autistic and confused escapes through an unlocked front door and discovers a world that is cruel and far from safe.

Imaad – A drug dealer on the brink of uncertainty drowning in a sea of betrayal and animosity.

Zahra – Finders not keepers of the man who changed her life and future.

Then, one moment, a fatal incident rips their souls apart and transforms their landscapes forever.

Born to illiterate migrant parents, Shamim Khan was encouraged to acquire two languages and write Urdu from a young age. Her elder sister paved this path further by handing down Enid Blyton adventure books and an insatiable hunger for books. The local library was a second home and English Literature became both a passion and strength. After completing a BA (Hons) in English Lang/Lit, with primary qualified teacher status she married and emigrated for a while. She currently resides in the North West with her husband and three boys, and continues to avidly read, cook aromatic curries, and bake whilst working on her second novel.

    I have just read the first 12 pages and they have left me gasping for more. The first few pages are full of intrigue, passion and twists already. It seems there are a few interesting characters. Already in love with Inaya and Salman. What I really like is that language is simple and effortlessly flows. I am looking forward for it to be published and read through rest of the story.
