Heart-warming storytelling with strong themes of sisterhood from nation’s favourite and former Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, this is Little Women meets Marian Keyes’ Walsh family series for a new generation of readers.

The four Amir Sisters – Fatima, Farah, Bubblee and Mae – are as close as sisters can be but sometimes even those bonds can be pushed to their limits . . .

Becoming a mother has always been Farah’s dream so when older sister Fatima struggles with a tough pregnancy whilst Farah has trouble conceiving she cant help but be jealous. Until a plan to break a huge cultural taboo in her family, and use a surrogate gives her a renewed hope. But nothing is ever that easy in this warm, witty look at a modern British family.

’Funny, warm and uplifting, Nadiya has produced a fabulous follow-up about faith and family’
OK! magazine

The Fall and Rise of the Amir Sisters is, in fact, bold in tackling serious topics, with mental health issues, sexuality, faith and failed ambitions driving the plot… In the end, and after a decidedly un-fluffy twist, The Fall and Rise of the Amir Sisters succeeds in showing how gender stereotypes hurt everyone – men and women alike. All of this makes for an enriching, thought-provoking and – yes – entertaining read.’
