Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Excellent story of culture clash, complicated family relationships and missed chances. Amina comes to the U.S. from Bangladesh to marry George in order to better herself and has carefully planned work, school and citizenship in order to bring her parents over also. However, all is bittersweet after she finds out a bit more about her husband’s past relationships and that a Deshi man she loved is still available when she goes back to get her parents. Unfortunately, like many women, Muslim or not, it seems that her wants and desires must always take a back seat to those of the parents, husband or children. A frustrating story that can only really end one way and does, but it’s not the way I wanted.
