Seeking the one

A tale of love and forgiveness

About this novel

This young adult novel was my winter project, penned over a three-month period, December 2021 to February 2022. This presentation should be considered an early draft, as yet unedited.

Chapters will be published here in instalments weekly, every Friday, inshallah.
