The Servant Boy: A Rags to Riches Novel by Reesha Goral

The Servant Boy highlights the adventures of Zayne Shah, a young man who lives through the most horrific disaster his village, Saidpur, has ever seen. An epidemic has unknowingly raged through Saidpur and is taking the lives of umpteen folk before his eyes. Zayne is determined to find a cure to the mystery, at whatever the cost may be, even if that cost is a price he cannot presently afford.

Zayne goes through a series of ups and downs as he takes you with him, embracing life through vivid details, all of which include paradoxes that anyone from any walk of life can relate to: life and death, happiness and grief, love and envy, friendship and animosity.

Although The Servant Boy is a multicultural novel, and will appeal to those that will enjoy learning about the colorful and vibrant culture of Pakistan, it will also enchant those who enjoy mystery, fantasy, adventure, friendship, and romance. There is something in the novel for everyone.

About the Author

Reesha Goral is a young novelist who resides in Virginia with her husband and son. Although The Servant Boy is her first novel, it had its first debut in Istanbul, Turkey where it was translated in Turkish and published under the Turkish title, Uşak. In inspiration of writing The Servant Boy, she was deeply impacted by her many visits to Pakistan. On an account of engaging with an unsheltered woman, she spoke, "People are dying of hunger every year. They are people with bare necessities who have to instead improvise, with barely any. And that only makes them living, lifeless people."
Her various other personal experiences, research, and imagination assembled the rest of the novel.

Fantastic novel! I have to say I haven't read a novel like this in a very long time. I read a lot, almost every day and it takes a lot to impress me. This novel took me in for a surprise, especially because Goral is a debut author but her novel sounds anything BUT a debut. The plot is extremely interesting. Usually books get boring very fast, it seems like authors don't have enough material to write so they start blabbering non sense. This is not at all the case with this novel, every page was interesting and it was hard for me to put it down. If I didn't have a commitment to my job I would have finished it in one day. I am already looking forward to the next novel this author writes. I also dearly hope this book becomes a movie. I would be the first one in line.

This book is phenomenal. The author did a great job at establishing a character reader relationship. I felt like I WAS Zayne, and as the book carried along I felt as if I was growing with Zayne. This book has motivated me to do the impossible, it is truly a captivating novel, from the mysterious components to the romance components, I highly recommend it!!!
