“The personal and political inspections that evolve from Dianna’s ambitions and connections are astute and realistic: “Did love bring happiness? Did it bring power? Didn’t Solomon’s Biblical love song say that love was as strong as death? Now that was power.”
The resulting saga of shifting core values, contrasts between Dianna’s white American Christian roots and how they will (or won’t) dovetail with Qasim’s Lebanese Muslim family, and focus on diversity and choice is highly recommended for libraries and readers seeking evocative works that will also fuel powerful book club discussions.”
