The Good Muslim, by Tahmima Anam.

Brother (Sohail) and sister (Maya) have different, though similar, reactions to the devastating-to-their-country civil war in Bangladesh.  Their stories jump from the end of the conflict in the early 1970s to the 1980s when Maya returns after years of (self) exile.  Finally, there’s a coda catching us up to 1992.
