Sometimes we can’t escape the webs we are born into. Sometimes we are the architects of our own fall.
Akash Choudry wants a love for all time, not an arranged marriage. Still, under the weight of parental hopes, he agrees to one. He and Jaya marry in a cloud of colour and spice in Bombay. Their marriage has barely begun when Akash embarks on an affair.
Jaya can’t contemplate sharing her husband with another woman, or looking past his indiscretions as her mother suggests. Cornered by sexual politics, she takes her fate into her own hands in the form of a lit match.
Nothing endures fire. As shards of their past threaten their future, will Jaya ever bloom into the woman she can be, and will redemption be within Akash’s reach?

"All the Tomorrows by Nillu Nasser is a gripping tale of love and betrayal... The story is compelling and original, and it immediately transports the reader into the heart of a culture, a setting that reflects the thrills and perils of Bombay, capturing powerful images of the place in vivid clarity, from the dust of the overcrowded streets to the morality of Bombay. The characters are memorable, well-developed, and deeply explored. The conflict is strong and the reader is captivated as it escalates into a crisis point. All the Tomorrows is a wonderful read and the humanity that is injected into the writing will greatly appeal to readers. Nillu Nasser is a gifted and a great entertainer. This novel is balanced and utterly engrossing." (Romuald Dzemo, Readers' Favorite Book Reviews)

Narration only adds to this beautiful story
I love this story, written by wonderful author Nillu Nasser. So, after reading the paperback, I was thrilled to learn that an audiobook was available. Although honestly, I wondered if I'd enjoy the narrated version as much as I did the written prose. Luckily for me, Daki De Alwis' narration only made me love this story more, and allowed the very realistic characters to continue living in my mind and heart.
