The Bones Of Grace


‘The Bones of Grace’ is an epic love story, and an epic story of love. It is in part a traditional love affair, following the thwarted passions of Zubaida Bashir for Elijah Strong. Elijah is a man from whom Zu cannot bear to be separated and yet is unable to face the consequences of what a life together would mean. The novel also takes to its heart the very notion of love in all its forms. Parental love and platonic love, childish adoration, marital expectation and the pain of a philosophic love and hopes one day to be fulfilled are woven together to deeply dramatic effect.

Zubaida is on a journey to unearth the past. It will lead her from the corridors of Harvard to the scorching deserts of Pakistan, and the bones of an ancient whale. It will carry her back to Bangladesh, and the dark horrors of a ship-breaking yard. Here – deep inside a beached ocean liner, steeped in mystery and tragedy – lies the key to her story. And a lifeline to the man she loves, but whose heart she may never win back.

Echoing with loneliness and longing, The Bones of Grace is a story of lost love and conflicted identity; of the urgent need to discover who we are, before we can truly belong anywhere and truly love anyone.
