The Long Wait is the story of a handicapped Muslim girl who wants to be educated, but her parents and the situation around her do not allow her to study. Her parents are busy fighting for property, which they always prefer over their childrens education. She is forced to marry into a family where she is tortured mentally and physically. Still, she has hope with her son that good days will kiss her fate one day. Facing more unfavorable circumstances than others due to her lack of education, she waits for the good days to come. Along the way, her family members pass through the thorny ways of village life. The story portrays the rich culture of the village and evokes nostalgia for traditional values as it places the reader alongside the mother, waiting for her sons success.
