ABOUT THE BOOK
When Sami Amara’s father suddenly dies, he is confronted with a past that he never knew existed: a mysterious girl, now woman, and promises unfulfilled. Single mother Petra Haddad has grown accustomed to a life of routine, predictability and…loneliness. When a lawyer calls her up to discuss the will of a man she never even knew, her world is turned upside down. Thrust together by fate, as their lives and histories entangle and intertwine, will they be able to forge a shared future together or will fate once again intervene?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Lilas Taha is a writer at heart, an electrical engineer by training and an advocate for domestic abuse victims by choice. She was born in Kuwait to a Syrian mother and a Palestinian father, and immigrated to the U.S. as a result of the Gulf war in 1990. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Electric Engineering from Kuwait University and a master’s degree in Human Factors Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There, Lilas met her beloved husband and true friend, and moved with him to Texas to start a family. She is the proud mother of a daughter and a son. Instead of working in an industrial field, she applied herself to the field of social safety, working with victims of domestic violence. Pursuing her true passion for creative writing, Lilas brings her professional interest and Middle Eastern background together in her novels.
