Just back from the book launch. The book store was full. I read a 3 minute passage and Sherrill Wark reviewed the book very nicely. It is available at Books on Beechwood for $12 only - a story unlike any other you've ever read. Would make a great action packed movie.
Book Launch: Forbidden Love in the land of Sheba
Please join me April 3rd for the book launch of my third novel, in 3 years, and my 5th book: FORBIDDEN LOVE IN THE LAND OF SHEBA
Fifteen-year-old Hana has a crush on twenty-year-old cousin, Farook. But he leaves Yemen to study medicine in Scotland. Her parents force her to marry another cousin, twice her age, a selfish, abusive criminal involved in arms’ sales and gang rapes. Ten years later, Hana’s life changes dramatically when Farook opens a clinic next door.
Review by a Yemeni Woman:
“When you begin to read this novel, you will not stop for one moment, enticed by the versatility of the writer in crafting its plot with tact and skill. As a woman of Yemeni origin, I wish to thank Dr. Qais Ghanem for his courage in exposing the reality of Yemen in this and his two other novels: Final Flight from Sanaa and Two Boys from Aden College.”
Review by Canadian Author:
"Against a backdrop of things unimaginable by the Western mind, the author takes us on a journey of intrigue, passion and danger. Death lurks in every corner, in every whisper, in every kiss."
--Sherrill Wark, crowecreations.ca
