Captured from Zanzibar and sold into slavery, Faraj becomes the best pearl diver in the Arabian land of Zwaylem.
When he falls in love with Ouaysheh, the beautiful daughter of a slave and her Noble Master, Faraj discovers the masters’ chains have no hold on him like forbidden love. Faraj must become a free man in order to marry Ouaysheh. His fight for freedom to satisfy his heartsick soul takes Faraj on a journey down paths that can only be explained by faith. Will he win his freedom and the love of his life, or will he die trying?
Available in hardcover and paperback formats. Audiobook coming January 2024.
