Rohini Sunderam – an update on a new book

Rohini Sunderam was previously featured on Reading Recommendations in Nov. 2015, and is back now to tell us about a new book of stories about five people living in Bahrain.


Five Lives – One Day in Bahrain

Published by Ex-L-Ence Publishing

Five Lives – One day in Bahrain is set in the year 2007, but it’s a story that could apply to almost any time. It traces the lives of five very different people, a housemaid from Sri Lanka; a municipal garbage truck driver from India; a Filipina hairdresser and beauty salon manager; a British banker, and a young Bahraini man.

The five prayer times that Muslims observe are used to punctuate the different periods in the day and the story’s action. Through the course of the day, we learn of the individuals’ lives and hopes until a point when they are all brought together and their lives intertwine.

Who connects with whom? Discover unsung heroes. This is an uplifting story that celebrates ordinary people in extraordinary ways.

Seumas Gallacher has also featured Rohini Suderam on his blog.
