Description

Fatimah is a devout Muslim. Steve is a regular guy who has never given much thought to faith. They happen to be walking in the same street when a terrorist bomb explodes. Steve is badly injured and when the emergency services arrive, Fatimah is cradling his head in her lap, talking to him, willing him to stay alive. But the Press is there too, and next day their picture appears in every newspaper. 'Romeo and Juliet', scream the headlines. 'Love across the divide.' Then the threats and anonymous 'phone calls start. Can the two young people rise above the hatred and learn to understand one another? But while Steve and Fatimah are trying to break down barriers, the terrorists have another target in mind...This title is also available as an ebook, in either Kindle, ePub or Adobe ebook editions
