Sarah Hedley Hymers will be back to host the book club and she will be joined by Padmini Shankar who is the author of The Mother of all Parties. The book will be of particular interest as the fictional story is about a family who lives in Dubai. The book was published just last year by Black Ink, an imprint of Harper Collins In and has received many four and five star reviews.

If you want to purchase this book, it is available on amazon.ae.
