It is a truth universally acknowledged that when a family's fortune is destroyed by scandal and rumour, they must look to their daughters to marry well. Alys Binat, however, loves life as it is: teaching English literature and encouraging her female students to aspire to more than society expects of them. She is resolute: she will not marry. However, her mother thinks differently and when the family receive an invite to a big wedding, Mrs Binat immediately coaches her daughters to snag rich, eligible bachelors. There, Alys's eldest sister, Jena, catches the eye of Fahad `Bungles' Bingla, a successful entrepreneur, but Alys is irked when she overhears Bungles' friend Valentine Darsee's snobbish assessment of her. As the festivities unfold, the Binats hold their breath, waiting to see if Bungles will propose. And Alys realises that Darsee's apparent rudeness and contempt may conceal a different man from the one she first judged him to be. An essential guide to marriage, class and sisterhood in modern-day Pakistan.
