Book Review - The Yard

"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time." - the Yard

The yard is a story of an abandoned boy Behrooz, who gains a new family overnight, and a young rebellious girl Maya, who stands apart from the rest of her family; adapting to the new family dynamics, struggling with their inner turmoil's, and with all the forces against them, they fall in love with each other. The story is built around a yard, which resides a large family, giving a spin to the traditional modern love story. This book is about a Muslim family in Trinidad, but irrespective of the religion or culture or nation, a lot of us may be able to relate to it.It is an unconventional but authentic story of love, sacrifice and family drama, which sums up the significance of the yard itself.
