______________

'Enchanting, achingly funny and uplifting, Ayesha at Last is a must read!' Randa Abdel-Fattah
______________

A big-hearted, captivating, modern-day Muslim Pride and Prejudice, with hijabs instead of top hats and kurtas instead of corsets.

AYESHA SHAMSI has a lot going on. Her dreams of being a poet have been overtaken by a demanding teaching job. Her boisterous Muslim family, and numerous (interfering) aunties, are professional naggers. And her flighty young cousin, about to reject her one hundredth marriage proposal, is a constant reminder that Ayesha is still single.

Ayesha might be a little lonely, but the one thing she doesn't want is an arranged marriage. And then she meets Khalid... How could a man so conservative and judgmental (and, yes, smart and annoyingly handsome) have wormed his way into her thoughts so quickly?

As for Khalid, he's happy the way he is; his mother will find him a suitable bride. But why can't he get the captivating, outspoken Ayesha out of his mind? They're far too different to be a good match, surely...

Review:

A clever homage to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that you'll love, even if you never got round to
reading the original.

, Cosmopolitan

This is the book I've been waiting for since my long-running Jane Austen obsession. Move over Darcy, Khalid's in town., S. K. Ali, author of Morris Award finalist, Saints and Misfits

Uzma Jalaluddin blazes a brilliant new trail with Ayesha At Last, a captivating romance set in the Muslim community, brimming with humour and heart. You will fall in love with Ayesha and Khalid-an Elizabeth and Darcy for our times., Ausma Zehanat Khan, author of A Dangerous Crossing

Ayesha At Last is a cross-cultural pleasure, a romp, a modern, Muslim salute to Pride and Prejudice. The lovely, witty writing is testimony to an excellent eye and ear at work., Elinor Lipman, author of On Turpentine Lane and The Inn at Lake Devine

Enchanting, achingly funny and uplifting, Ayesha at Last is a must read!, Randa Abdel-Fattah, author of Does My Head Look Big in This?

An excellent modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice. With humor and abundant cultural references, Jalaluddin cleverly illustrates the social pressures facing young Indian-Muslim adults. A highly entertaining tale of family, community, and romance. , Publishers Weekly, starred review

A lively and raucous story that mixes a zany cast of characters with a tightly wound plot... Delicious, adorable and entertaining. , Kirkus, starred review

Delightful. Innovative, relevant and so very relatable., Asian Life Magazine

From the Author:

Uzma Jalaluddin attended the University of Toronto for her undergraduate and teacher's college, where she spent too much time perusing the library stacks for novels to read, and not enough time poring over textbooks. She grew up in a close knit, diverse neighbourhood in Toronto, Canada,and regularly attended events at her local mosque, even when her parents didn't make her. Today she teaches in a public high school, and writes 'Samosas and Maple Syrup,' a parenting and culture column for The Toronto Star, Canada's largest daily newspaper. All of her reading and secret novel writing eventually paid off... AYESHA AT LAST is her first novel. She lives with her husband and two sons near Toronto.
