When Shelina Janmohamed, an Oxford-educated Muslim living in the bubbling ethnic mix of North London, opted for the traditional "arranged" route to finding a partner, she never suspected it would be the journey of her life.
Through ten long years of matchmaking buxom aunties, countless mismatches, and outrageous dating disasters, Shelina discovers more about herself and her faith. Along the way, she learns that sometimes being true to her religion means challenging tradition, while readers learn much about Islam that may surprise them.

The book should have been called "British Indian Muslim in headscarf". To actually enjoy the book, you have to be able to plough through the following: her woe is me attitude, there is nothing wrong with me, looking for myself, etc. If you were ever thinking of converting to Islam, she does a very good insight into the religion. I could not be bothered to finish the book.
