Saffron Dreams is a tale of love, tragedy, and redemption from the award-winning author of Beyond the Cayenne Wall...
You don't know you're a misfit until you are marked as an outcast.
From the darkest hour of American history emerges a mesmerizing tale of
tender love, a life interrupted, and faith recovered. Arissa Illahi, a
Muslim artist and writer, discovers in a single moment that no matter how
carefully you map your life, it is life itself that chooses your destiny.
After her husband's death in the collapse of the World Trade Center, the
discovery of his manuscript marks Arissa's reconnection to life. Her
unborn son and the unfinished novel fuse in her mind into one
life-defining project that becomes, at once, the struggle for her
emotional survival and the redemption of her race. Saffron Dreams is a
novel about our ever evolving identities and the events and places that
shape them. It reminds us that in the midst of tragedy, our dreams can
become a lasting legacy.
