This title is a winner of the Costa First Novel Award.

Beauty - in both name and appearance - is a twenty-year-old Bangladeshi, back in England having shocked her family by fleeing an abusive arranged marriage.

Now she is forced onto the jobseekers' treadmill. Her fractious encounters with officialdom and passers-by in the city streets place her at the mercy of many unlikely helpers.

But it's with honesty and compassion that Beauty moves ever closer towards resolving her dilemma of family duty and personal destiny.
