Description

THE EXCITING NEW NOVEL BY A POPULAR ONLINE AUTHOR! Driving a taxi on the foggy streets of San Francisco, Iraq war veteran Louis Hedstrom is stuck in a rut so deep he can't see the sun. He lives alone, has no friends and can't bear to be touched. When he meets and gets to know an African-American Muslim woman named Khadija, and then a mysterious courier named Hassan, he begins a spiritual journey to Islam that leaves him shaken, challenges everything he thought he knew, and threatens to alienate him from his family forever. Filled with romance, action and spiritual insight, Pieces of a Dream creates its own genre in a single stroke, taking Muslim fiction to a new level. Passionate, honest and funny, it is a book that can be enjoyed by readers of all faiths, and is one that will not be easily forgotten. * * * Expanded from a short story that appeared on MuslimMatters.org, "Pieces of a Dream" has been acclaimed by readers as refreshing, exciting and much needed. EARLY READER COMMENTS: "Very interesting. I found the characters believable and well developed. I think we need more Muslim fiction like this." - Ra'ed "Love the writing, the imagery is perfect. A thriller! Very curious as to how the author is familiar with military procedure and slang. Great imagery... can visualize everything as it happens... Curious as to the Islamic angle in this as well." - Zari "MashaAllah! I enjoyed (it) immensely." - Amanda T. "Shukran for sharing your stories with us, the characters flaws, struggles and desires are realistic and inspiring through their journey to Allah Taala." - Ilhaam "Salam Brother Wael, you write really well Mashallah! And this is coming from a lifetime thriller/mystery reader." - Hamayoun "Thank you for writing (this)... much needed on many levels." - Amy "Ma'Sha Allah. I rarely read books like this BUT you have got me hooked!" - Wazeed
