Forbidden by Faith isn’t only a love story, it’s also the story of young woman’s journey of self-discovery. Sara has her plate full: pharmacy school, loving–but demanding–traditional Persian parents and family, and two hot, forbidden men who are both willing to fight for her.
The author kept me guessing and I loved not knowing how this story was going to end. Papehn also did a stellar job of depicting Sara’s struggle to find the truth while those around her are busily pursuing their own agendas.
Sara walks a fine line of being an American, a Persian, and a woman who is her own person, regardless of labels or her family’s or society’s expectations.
Papehn tells Sara’s story in a clean, fast-paced, direct fashion that is compelling without sacrificing beautiful, intelligent, and often amusing prose.
Here are a few examples:
“There was a warmth about him that felt like fingers wrapped around a hot cup of tea on a cold day.”
“Persian women were a special breed, possessing certain ironclad strength. They never showed weakness. . . . Absolutely no one considered therapy, unless they were clinically insane.”
And then there were the descriptions of food, which left me so hungry I was ready to gnaw off my arm. I LOVE Persian food and it was torture to read about it and have no Persian mother here to cook for me.
Anyhow, I loved the book–starting from the very first page. The prologue, which was clever, made the story even more fun and interesting to read (you’ll need to read the book to see what I mean!)
I was given a copy by the publisher to read and review.
A beautiful debut romance by an author that should stay on your radar!
