“Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.” Jan Demir, the protagonist in “Persian Pearl Tulip”, will discover the brevity of this quote by Marguerite de Valois when he embarks on a journey that will change his life as he knows it. From the mesmerizing cityscapes of London to the scintillating streets of Lisbon, this novel by Rafic Daud, will take readers on a quest to unlock one of the greatest mysteries of the heart.

Jan Demir is a young, ambitious partner at LCI, Inc., an investment-planning firm that he helped found. His stellar reputation shines beyond Portugal and his rapid rise to success is matched only by his philandering and jet-set lifestyle. But Jan’s world and life will soon take an unexpected turn when his business partner and mentor, Pascoal, sends him to Tehran, Iraq, for a business deal.

The negotiations go smoothly but the last thing on Jan’s mind is to meet the girl of his dreams- the beautiful Golnaz. Attraction becomes inevitable and the two fall madly in love, turning their lives upside down. Jan uses his old charms to win Golnaz only to find out that she is unlike any other girl he has met before. Despite their differences and many obstacles that present themselves, Jan knows that the two of them are meant to be. Will love really transcend boundaries? Will he succeed in winning her heart? Or will he only push her away? Readers will discover the answers in this modern parable of love and romance.

Spellbinding from beginning to finish, “Persian Pearl Tulip” is an invitation to celebrate and explore the essence of love through the lives of two seemingly different people bound by it.
