There comes a time when a girl must decide whether to leave or stay!
This is the Journey to that moment of choice .
Within the confines of the Galle Fort, Yasmin and her best friend Penny enjoy an idyllic childhood of sea swims,bike rides and movies in a world that was fun, glamorous and free. But Yasmin comes from a tightly knit, conformist community that thrives on tradition, family bonds and honour, and eventually her friendship with Penny must end.
This sharply insightful memoir depicts a young muslim girl’s struggle to balance the traditions of a loving yet conservative father, who wants to keep her safe, against the more liberal westernized Sri Lankan world outside. Stay, Doughter is a beautifully crafted story suffused with love, humour and compassion .A memoir that provides a glimpse into the microcomics Galle Fort Muslim community of 1960s post independent Sri Lanka.
A unique and important voice of our time that of Muslim womem.
