2. Book cover
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 cannot 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?
4. Book themes and target audience
All the Tomorrows is about second chances, the weight of tradition and gender, and the line between happiness and selfishness. It will appeal to readers of literary fiction, those who like foreign travel and family sagas.

“Where to begin reviewing a book as near perfect as All the Tomorrows by Nillu Nasser? Given this is literary fiction, which is character rather than plot driven, perhaps one should start there…. All the Tomorrows is rich in engaging, realistic characters who grab readers’ hearts and minds and don’t let them go till all the story is told. And what a story it is! Yet, make no mistake: while All the Tomorrows is character driven, those who enjoy a good plot will not be disappointed. There are enough twists to keep plot-lovers reading. But without doubt, what holds readers most are Nillu Nasser’s characters. This is superb writing for a first novel from a very gifted author. Congratulations to Nillu Nasser, and to Evolved Publishing for recognizing her talent. Personally, I hope I get to be amongst the first to read her next novel, Hidden Colours, when it’s released. Bravo!” ~ Viga Boland, Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews
“In one way, All the Tomorrows is a love story that reflects the characters’ perceptions of love both within and outside the confines of marriage. Akash and Jaya both have hopes for their arranged marriage; but romance can’t be forced, and doesn’t seem to be evolving. Instead, dreams literally go up in flames, and everything changes for them both. … Replete with hard lessons, determined dreams, and illusions and realities surrounding love and relationships, All the Tomorrows is a gripping saga set under the sweltering heat not just of India, but of hearts on fire. It’s an involving story of the tides and trajectories of love which will especially intrigue readers looking for more than a light dose of Indian cultural insights.” ~ D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
“Each relationship is written with complete authenticity … I loved how the author created a powerful and self-sufficient image of a woman who does not rely on a man to make her complete. Jaya wishes for love but does not diminish her own value in its pursuit.” ~ Ankita Shukla, Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews
All the Tomorrows by Nillu Nasser is a gripping tale of love and betrayal and, most importantly, a tale of fire…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
