One thing that is universal, among all people, is the desire to achieve our dreams.

Many people dream of meeting someone and falling in love. But what if the love was never meant to be?

In “UPHILL,” by Zohra G. Salahuddin, M.D., readers find a story of young love in Karachi, Pakistan. The couple seems to be headed for unending happiness, until family expectations and tradition attempt to tear them apart.

“This is a story about perseverance and hope, in the face of insurmountable odds,” Salahuddin said. “I want to show the world how the people in my birth-country of Pakistan can suffer so many iniquities and hardships, but never lose their courage and spunk.”

Salahuddin is an anesthesiologist in Pennsylvania, born in Karachi, Pakistan. In her new book, she offers readers a window into the life of a Muslim family and their customs. Readers sample a taste of the culture and language of Pakistan, while young love is tested and tried.

“One thing that is universal, among all people, is the desire to achieve our dreams,” Salahuddin said. “If we are willing to do whatever it takes to make our dreams come true, nothing can stand in our way.”
