Story


To all appearances, May Brennan has it all - she is intelligent, a successful published author and is set to marry her loving fiance Ziad. But the cracks in her seemingly perfect life begin to show when she returns to her hometown Amman for the wedding. Her headstrong, born-again Christian mother Nadine disapproves of Ziad, a Muslim. Her sisters Dalia and Yasmine revert to behaving like rebellious teenagers. And her estranged father Edward, newly remarried, awkwardly attempts to make amends. May's carefully structured world appears to unravel as she grapples with her own truths.
