Hamila Khatun's debut novel, The Secret Diary of an Arranged Marriage is out.

The 'Secret Diary of an Arranged Marriage' lifts the lid on the intriguing world of British-Bengali matrimony and explores family, identity and belonging with acerbic humour. 

A British-Bengali girl looking for Mr Right.  A motley crew of men, some hoping it’s them.  A mum on a mission to match make.  And an age-old tradition with a twist.  Welcome to the world of the arranged marriage.

“While I’m young, (somewhat) free and single, time is – by Bengali standards – marching on.  I’ve got to meet my dream man, or at least someone I can grow to like, and get married.  The trouble is, I don’t really know what – or who – I’m looking for.       

Luckily (or not) for me, arranged marriages are still a thing.  So alongside my own dating efforts, it’s everyone’s business – from my adorable yet overbearing mum, to pretend aunties and profiteering opportunists – to find me a match.  With all this help, I’m pretty sure I’ll land a husband, but will he be ‘The One’?”                   

The ebook is available on Amazon right now (click here) and if you’re on Kindle Unlimited, the good news is you can read it for free.
