In this heartwrenching new novel from Award-winning author and poet, Fatima Bala, a connection sends two lovers with different ideologies on a search for redemption in places far from home.

A story of imperfect love. Broken from the start; yet constant.
Fa’iza Mohammed grew up very sheltered in a conservative Muslim home. Her otherwise sane life is thrust into turmoil when she finds herself falling for someone with a completely different set of values from hers when she comes to Toronto for University. She tries to fight it, but there’s an undeniable attraction simmering between them. She soon realizes that they are probably better apart – but can they stay away from each other?

Ahmad Babangida believes everything is a construct. Society and religion condition people to be sheep, and he goes out of his way to live his life on his terms. His attraction to Fa’iza doesn’t help as the lines between halal and haram start to become blurred.

When a revelation breaks them apart, they hold a secret, one that could tear the seams of the Islamic upbringing their family holds in high regard. Five years later, is it too late for them, or is the road to redemption shut against them for crossing the lines into forbidden paths?
