Blurb for my novel

Mary Ann struggles to adjust in her new life working as a house maid far away from her own country and family. She has to contend with the callousness of her employer, the competition from the other maid, the sullen Nurul and the overtures of the handsome driver next door Rahul as she tries to focus on the reason for leaving her son – to earn enough to give him a comfortable life. The little boy Youssef who she takes care of and reminds her of her son becomes her only solace. Will she survive the two years she has signed up for?

I had this idea for a novel some time ago and had started writing but somehow I stopped. Thanks to my friend Silverleaf I have started again and aim to complete it this year.

  9. Aw, I am so touched that you would mention me in such a lovely way. I am happy to have had anything to do with your return to your story. I will look forward to hearing about how it’s going, your challenges and triumphs in telling it, and to reading it one day. It sounds compelling.

      • Hm. That is a good question. I could maybe skip the first chapter, which is a bumpy ride, and start re-reading at chapter 2. That might be less daunting. If I tell you Friday, then it’s kind of like a commitment and maybe I’ll do it! Thank you for asking.
        Good luck with keeping at it. I could check in on how it’s going every now and then, if you like?
