Good Intentions

Kasim Ali

13 April 2023 All day

An unforgettable debut novel about first love, family obligation and finding your way.

In the wake of first heartbreak, Nur somehow meets his perfect woman. Yasmina is bright, beautiful and, what’s most remarkable, she’s into him too. Before long, they are inseparable.

But no relationship is perfect. For Yasmina, the complexities of family and cultural expectation are something she wants to navigate with Nur by her side. For Nur, the weight of being the ‘good son’ is suffocating, and threatens everything he wants for his future with Yasmina. As the pressure mounts, can Nur find a way to offer her everything she deserves, or is he taking his own good intentions for granted?
