Waiting on Wednesday: A Sister To Honor

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating!

A Sister To Honor
by Lucy Ferriss
Expected Publication Date: January 6, 2015
Synopsis from Goodreads

Afia Satar is studious, modest, and devout. The young daughter of a landholding family in northern Pakistan, Afia has enrolled in an American college with the dream of returning to her country as a doctor. But when a photo surfaces online of Afia holding hands with an American boy, she is suddenly no longer safe—even from the family that cherishes her.
Rising sports star Shahid Satar has been entrusted by his family to watch over Afia in this strange New England landscape. He has sworn to protect his beloved sister from the dangerous customs of America, from its loose morals and easy virtue. Shahid was the one who convinced their parents to allow her to come to the United States. He never imagined he’d be ordered to cleanse the stain of her shame...

Why I am waiting....

  4. Wow, that culture clash sounds intense and fascinating!

  5. This sounds religious, which is not my favorite thing to read about. But I love the diversity elements. There need to be more diverse books. Seriously. It's such a big problem.

  6. This sounds like a great book, exploring another culture.

    Thanks for stopping by.
