Duty free : a novel
Jane Austen's Emma, transported to the outrageous social melée of 21st-century Lahore, where matchmaking is no easy job. Our plucky heroine's cousin Jonkers has been dumped by his low-class secretary, and our heroine has been charged with finding him a suitable wife--a rich, fair, beautiful, old-family type. Quickly. But, between you, me and the four walls, who wants to marry poor, plain, hapless Jonkers? As our heroine social-climbs her way through weddings, sheddings, and ladies' lunches, trying to find a suitable girl from the right background, she discovers to her dismay that her cousin has his own ideas about his perfect mate. Meanwhile, her own marriage is faltering, money troubles are mounting, and armed, angry "beardos" from the hinterlands are closing in on Lahore, threatening everything she holds dear.--From publisher description.
