With dawn breaking, Henna and Osman leave their home for a pleasant drive to Sakrand, but by day’s end they find themselves lost in a dense jungle with a near-empty gas tank and no clear direction. Plowing ahead with only a full moon to guide them, a palace set in an expansive clearing appears miraculously. There they meet the vacationing Undersecretary His Highness Al Kindy of Abu Dhabi Water & Electricity Department, who offers Osman a job at the Department.

Osman arrives in Abu Dhabi alone, but soon befriends three other expatriate engineers. Though the men embrace four different religions their close relationship continues to flourish after their families arrive. When Osman meets with a great tragedy, he is devastated. Soon after, a power crisis threatens to cripple the country. Can Osman overcome his grief and save his adopted country’s officials from humiliation, and his coworkers from losing their jobs?

About A Mohit

See more books from this Author
Mohit published the first edition of One God in You and Me in 1996, and the book received wide acclaim. His second book, For Our Daughters, was an extension of this thought process on the device of exploitation. In this book, he graphically exposed the weakness in the assertion held by many that men and women have equal status in modern society and blamed the practices of various religions and other institutions for the prolonged prejudice against and mistreatment of women.Never Had a Chance to Say Goodbye is Mohit's first work of fiction, in which he tells a fascinating story, with amazing dexterity. The life of expatriate community in the United Arab Emirates during the era of seventies and eighties comes alive in Mohit's writing.

ForeWord Reviews

There is an airplane crash and tragedy in the story, to which the title alludes, and while that, too, may be more fact than fiction, the event only adds a layer of sadness to an otherwise rather mundane story.
