The Shores of Our Souls 

Culture shaped them. Chance united them. Love transformed them. Running from the past and toward each other, their secrets will determine their destiny. The Shores of Our Souls takes the reader on a journey of discovery – blending the story-telling traditions of Southern literature with the intrigue of the developing world. This is the story of Qasim, an Arab Muslim U.N. official, fleeing family obligations in war – torn between Lebanon and Dianna, who’s escaping her rural Southern roots to become a researcher at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Despite their cultural differences, Qasim and Dianna share a keen intellect, ambition, and a world philosophy. Their attraction is immediate, and they fall in love. Taking the reader from New York City to the beauty of the Carolinas and into the salons of Beirut, The Shores of Our Souls juxtaposes the personal and political landscape of fledgling lovers. Will love be enough for the two lovers to sidestep history to make peace with each other and themselves? This timeless story of star-crossed lovers defies all social norms in an entanglement of passion, politics, and religion.
