FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily received an ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This story reminded me a little of 1991 movie Not Without my Daughter, in a very broad sense.
This is a story of fighting for love, family, and survival through incredible odds. Rashid is on a mission to Save Olivia and find out what went wrong two years ago after their one night together and she disappeared from his life. Oliva a virtual prisoner in the Buhruz Palace and must keep her secrets safe from Rashid or risk losing it all.
When civil unrest threatens the palace’s safety Rashid convinces Olivia to go away with him to where he can keep her safe. On the road together, living as man and wife the old feelings bubble to life and everything Oliva holds secret threatens to break her and Rashid apart. Will they escape Behruz together or apart?
The story was sweet, and I would have liked a little more grit and realism for an escape story during civil unrest in a Muslim country. However, the writing was excellent, very vivid with the details of the landscape it felt like I was there.
