    Despite the Falling Snow-my review

    Shamim Sarif is an amazing writer period, and this book proves it even more. the main character, Alexander sure lives an interesting life. Shamims writing style, and the way she formulates and presents the storyline is phenomenal--i think thats why i love her writing so much. its definitely a love story, and the characters are all imperative to how the story goes along. i went into reading it not knowing what it was about, and im definitely not disappointed. you will fall in love with most of the characters, relate to some, and even learn to despise a few. im not one to support affairs or cheating of any kind, but lemme tell you, after i read the book and saw the characters that Shamim has created... only on this occasion do i support it. Shamim tells a good romantic story that shows how to love yourself, love others around you, and how to stick up for what you believe--whatever your beliefs are.
