Wedlock by Jenny Grahame is a gripping and emotional journey through the tumultuous world of arranged marriages. The protagonist, a young woman named Aisha, is forced into a marriage with a much older man against her will. The author does a fantastic job of capturing Aisha's internal struggle as she navigates the complex emotions of love, duty, and self-preservation.

Grahame's writing style is both compelling and evocative, drawing the reader in with vivid descriptions and relatable characters. The tension and conflict in the story are palpable, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat throughout the book.

One of the most impressive aspects of Wedlock is the author's ability to tackle tough and controversial subjects with sensitivity and nuance. Grahame doesn't shy away from addressing the harsh realities of forced marriages, but she also manages to infuse the story with hope and resilience.

Overall, Wedlock is a thought-provoking and powerful novel that sheds light on an important issue while also providing a captivating and engaging story. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a compelling read that will leave them thinking long after they've turned the final page.
