Pakistan remains a mystery to the United States but its families share the same hopes and dreams as American families. This book talks about the struggling democracy, the religious fundamentalism, the terrorism, and the peoples’ desire to prosper democratically and economically. The story is told through the experiences of the Reza family in Lahore, Pakistan. They are hard-working and honest. The three sons take different paths representing the conditions and conflicts in Pakistan. Salman helps the family at the family business. Kamran is an idealistic law student trying to raise the democratic hopes of Pakistan through freedom and justice. Daniyal fell under the thrall of a fundamentalist imam and a mercenary who uses religion and terrorism to build his bank account. The story will captivate you.
