"An intense, joltingly modern love story." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS
Adam Gibson is a young and powerful Toronto millionaire. Despite his many blessings, he is an atheist, though he has an altruistic soul. He denies there is a God—until he meets a beautiful stranger in a place that does not exist for anyone but him.
Rania Ahmed strongly believes in God, but has lost hope she will ever find her soul mate. Endowed with hypnotic beauty and cursed by a brutal past, Rania has no idea she has cast a spell on Adam, who has never received more from a woman than physical pleasure. As Adam slowly discovers the true meaning of love from Rania, he begins to face his demons and reconsider his beliefs. He learns to love, forgive and repent. But as Adam grows closer to Rania, a series of strange, unexplained events threatens to drive them apart. To keep her from being destroyed by her past, he must persuade her to trust him with her deepest secrets.
In this spiritual romance, an atheist embarks on a path of enlightenment with a tormented soul who may just have the power to change everything he has ever believed to be true.
I was unsure about this book in the beginning, as I found it a little to wordy for my liking. However, this opinion changed as the storyline developed and the romance came out. Adam is your typical rich alpha male who this money is the route of happiness. Rania is quite the opposite, believing that happiness comes from friends, love, and faith. When they spend time together Adam begins to change his thinking. This story isn't a straight forward romance, their are elements of mystery, suspense and the paranormal. These were what gave the book it's edge and kept my intrigue to the end (oh how I didn't want or expect a cliff hanger). I will certainly read the second book as I need to know what happens to Adam and Rania! Overall I give this book an admirable 4 stars ~ Rosie
History, art and literature are my passions. I love digging out information about prophecies, divine miracles and paranormal events that are mentioned in history and holy books, that don't sound possible in today's modern world.
Since childhood, I have been into reading and writing--and yes, it can't happen without imagination, which luckily has no boundaries. Dance and music are also pastimes I enjoy, as well as reading romance fiction. I love to travel and explore historical cities.
A Silent Prayer (A Prayer Series) is my first story about paranormal events based on Islamic concepts.
