BOOK: Love Marriage by Monica Ali (Virago).

Yasmin Ghorami is a young medical doctor with a promising future in geriatrics while her gorgeous fiancé Joe Sangster is an obstetrician in the same hospital in London. She is the daughter of Bengali-speaking Indian immigrants whose union is not typical of their generation: theirs is a love marriage. Furthermore, her father, Shaokat, also a medical doctor, was a poor village orphan who was still working his way up from being a chai wallah (tea merchant) when he met and fell in love with her mother, Anisah, a bright young woman from a well-to-do family in Calcutta. He married “up”.
