Young authors Farishta and Tahmina Farhang stir the publishing world with their literary prowess as they release Stranger’s Love: Family Blood, a book based on a true story. Published through Xlibris, it lets readers into the life of one woman who must struggle to seek acceptance while fighting for her right to love.
Born into a family of Asian background and raised in a Westernised culture, Angel Khan lives in two worlds. One is her home, a place where all of her heart’s deepest desires are ignored, where her parents lock her in a world full of constraints. In an alternate world is where her friends are, the people who truly understand her and accept her for who she is. Through thick and thin, Angel can always count on Amar and Kiran.
Angel’s parents are never that strict about their customs as Muslims, except for one rule—that she, like all Muslim girls, must remain chaste until marriage. It goes without saying that she is not allowed to have a boyfriend. For years, Angel has stayed true to her promise, but the increasing aggravation from her parents is testing her limits. With all the false accusations and unwanted animosity, Angel becomes an outsider at her own home.
One day, after a huge fight with mother, Angel comes across a stranger who walks through the path of her life. Ares makes her feel secure, and with him comes a tender promise of the future. Angel knows that their forbidden relationship will never be accepted. But is she willing to turn away from her own blood for a stranger’s love? Readers will find out in this heartrending story of family, respect, tragedy, and love, Stranger’s Love: Family’s Blood.
