Storytelling at its best! This book was nominated for one of my Best Indie Titles of 2017 awards on my author blog, and I was honored to already have read the book before the nomination. Something about the way this story was put together and how it was told, draws the reader in immediately. Ahmed shows the audience the difference between richness and poverty. Being rich or poor is not an issue when it comes to love, but it can be, especially in one’s own mind. The pen is a grand storyteller, and it paints a wondrous and dark story that brings the reader right in the middle of the families, and the secrets that are held close. Darkness is a loom over the story, but it brings that element that is needed, a hint of realism and soulfulness of both Peter and Rose. The demons of the past are sure to haunt the future, and the backstory is what makes the story enriching and compelling.
