Mawaddah Ilmi Ingin Pulang is one of the best Malay I have read in 2021. Auni use nature theme to symbolize Mawaddah's feelings such as; rain to represent her sadness, darkest sky to represent her lowest point. I really appreciate when the author try to use 'show, don't tell' concept, which is rarely use in modern Malay fictions.
This book should comes with trigger warnings of pedophilia, sexual harassment, anxiety and mental health issues.
A highly recommended!
