)-- The Last Day in Karachi is a story of a young female medical graduate from Pakistan, who survived a brutal attack that almost took her life in her grandparents' house in Karachi, Pakistan. The attack leads to the violent death of her grandparents. Sabah takes the reader through her childhood and adult life experiences as a Muslim girl in a fictional format. This story tells the reader how she survived and overcame the traumatic events that she witnessed. She comes to the United States to visit her sister, and the story takes a turn for good—she meets a blue–eyed, blond-haired American entrepreneur who lives on the beach in Southern California, whom she falls in love with and marries. Her family resists her marriage outside her culture. She tells the reader how she overcomes the cultural barrier and follows her heart. She then takes the reader through her adventurous life in America with the love of her life, who introduces her to a new world—the American world, where she finds her place and practices medicine after she becomes licensed as a medical doctor.
