Typhoon by Qaisra Shahraz

A tragic tale of three young women, each one demonized by her past, this book is a riveting saga of love, duty, and deceit in Muslim family life. Set in the village of Chigapur, an innocent wife named Gulshan must watch helplessly as her husband is snatched away when he is caught cheating on her. As her world falls apart, the secrets of this city trapped in time, space, and guilt are revealed, along with the 20-year-old courtroom drama that started it all.

Looks at Bluefang. "No time for goodbye." she said as she faded. "If you want to get out alive, run for your life." Leaves a diamond for Bluefang. "This is my last time," She said as she faded away. "Bye.."
