Item description for Mapas para Amantes Perdidos / Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam...

The disappearance of Jugnu and Chanda, lovers who broke Islamic law to live in sin, throws the small community into upheaval. Rumors about their disappearance abound, but five months go by before anything certain is known. Finally, the police arrest Chanda's brothers, whom they believe murdered the couple to avenge their family's shame. As the novel unfolds over the next twelve months, we watch Jugnu's sister-in-law struggle to maintain her Islamic piety, as the effects of the double murder prove increasingly corrosive to the life of her family. At the heart of the turmoil is sexual freedom, and Aslam illustrates the many ways women's lives are restricted and romantic love is denied in the name of religion.

Description in Spanish: La desaparicin de una joven pareja de enamorados perteneciente a la comunidad pakistan de una ciudad del norte de Inglaterra se convierte en un autntico drama social cuando los hermanos de ella son detenidos y acusados del asesinato de los novios. Una encrucijada de pasiones, culturas y religiones en una historia de amor por encima de las diferencias.
