I rented "The Bones of Grace" and saw that this one is the 3rd in a trilogy. "A Golden Age" is the 1st in this trilogy. It was a deeply compelling book - Rehana and her two children during War-torn Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan). Rehana's character is totally believable as a strong and courageous woman in a world where men rule. I have asked the library to purchase the 2nd volume "The Good Muslim" to provide the complete trilogy.

Set during Bangladeshi's war of independence, the story of a woman and her family. Brilliant.

Well written story that humanizes an historical event that I knew very little about. I will look for other books by this author.
