    In The Newlyweds, we follow the story of Amina Mazid, who at age twenty-four moves from Bangladesh to Rochester, New York, for love. A hundred years ago, Amina would have been called a mail-order bride. But this is an arranged marriage for the twenty-first century: Amina is wooed by - and woos - George Stillman online. For Amina, George offers a chance for a new life and a different kind of happiness than she might find back home. For George, Amina is a woman who doesn’t play games.

    A cross-continental love story: a brilliantly observed novel about the exhilarations and complications of getting, and staying, wed. Amina Mazid is 24 when she leaves Bangladesh for New York, and for George Stillman, the husband who wooed her online. It's a 21st-century romance that echoes ancient traditions. And though George falls for Amina because she doesn't "play games", each is hiding something from the other. It is only when they put an ocean between them that Amina and George will discover whether they have a future.
