    An epic and engrossing quest for spiritual knowledge

    Frank Romano artfully chronicles his larger-than-life journey from growing up in the western U.S. to college in France, ending up in Morocco on a spiritual journey that is hard to believe is real. As we learn from the introduction, Romano at one point finds himself "resigned to the possibility I might never leave that prison, that I would forever be mentally and physically held captive to the doctrines reverberating within the walls of the mosque, which towered over the dusty suburbs like a desert tomb..." How he arrives at this juncture and how he returns home is incredible, hard to put down, and inspiring.

    Reviewed by Ernest Dempsey:

    Frank Romano is a veteran Italian-American lawyer, residing in Paris, and an erudite in literature and philosophy. In his latest book Storm Over Morocco, 'World Audience Inc., New York, 2007', Romano gives an engrossing account of his journey to Morocco and the implications of his African experience for his spiritual self. Frank¿s motivation to visit Morocco came after he went blasé on the ostentatious bustle of Parisian life and its dry intellectual themes. His observation of a couple of Moroccan servants in Paris sparked Frank¿s interest in their religion and culture. This led him to seek a universal truth that will bring peace to mankind, and the young Parisian fled the chains of a passionate romance to set out for Morocco with the words of a Muslim servant in his heart. As the book tells of Frank¿s encounters with a group of fundamentalist Muslims and his partial conversion to Islam, we are shown the chasm between peaceful spirituality and orthodox prejudice. Frank¿s experience of Moroccan hospitality and brotherhood is in stark contrast with the narrow mindedness and proselytizing designs of fundamentalist Muslims that live in groups for one single purpose: influencing people into submissive acceptance of dogma without any questioning. Torn between physical and psychological hardships, the book reveals how the author did find his spiritual truth amidst fanatics. Not only is Storm over Morocco an interesting story but is also a deep, thought-provoking work that addresses humanistic concerns like universality, peace, tolerance, and freedom. The author shows us the value of a purposeful life a life with a noble purpose in which man¿s safety and care is the prime issue a life in which man is not afraid of man a life that is worth living among humans. Frank¿s book is also likely to be a good read for people interested in knowing about cultures. His account of life in Morocco shows a rich imagery of the place, people, customs, and values of an African country so very different from the modern West.
