In the 1990s, Husna Hakeem travels to Kashmir in search of a shawl-seller. Little does she know that she will meet her destiny in the form of Meer, an unconventional, violence-abhorring man who becomes her soulmate. As they create an idyllic life for themselves in Meer dunga, Husna cannot be happier. But this happiness is rudely shattered when, on the night she gives birth to their child, she is forcibly separated from Meer and sent back to her hometown. Months later, Husna returns to Kashmir, determined to find answers, her newborn and, most of all, Meer. But can she find happiness again amidst the terrible violence that has engulfed the state? And is Meer still the same man she had once loved so deeply? A novel about the fractured relations and disturbing truths of lives in conflict zones, Meer is also a story of resilience and love.
