Ramadan Sky by Nichola Hunter
Ramadan Sky has already been published by HarperCollns in e-book format and is available at amazon online stores and other e-book outlets.
Ramadan Sky began its journey on authonomy in November 2011, and was picked up by the authonomy team and published in September 2013. My great thanks to Rachel and the whole team. You can read the first four chapters here. I do not need a backing but you may want to purchase the book if you enjoy this sample.
He is snorkelling – waving his thin arms around in the inexpert way he did in Bali – but this time he is naked and asleep, eyes shut tight, crawling like a shrimp across the crisp linen. He chats away to her in a high-pitched voice, sometimes in English and sometimes in Indonesian. She wonders whether the conversations they have when he is awake make any more sense than those when he is asleep. And what the hell she is doing here with him in this inhospitable place. The morning call to prayer rings out as he suddenly opens his eyes to find her watching him. They begin their dance without speaking, desire rising and breaking like waves while the voice outside continues to proclaim the greatness of God.
