A modern-day Arab Pride and Prejudice for a new generation of love
Noor Beyrouti has a lot going on. Her diary is a devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of her young adult life as a single, daughter, sister, friend, and young woman on a permanently doomed quest for self development, sense of self, and love.
Caught between the joys of singleton fun, career growth, and the fear of not finding love and getting married, this young adult doesn’t want to follow the tradition of an arranged marriage. Stuck between the challenge of following her parents’ will of not dating men (insane dating theories) and her desire to live a love story, Noor had to find her life with the boundaries set by traditions and norms.
In this hilarious and unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Noor meets a smart and handsome man who comes from a different background and religion. She fought for this relationship that has been challenged by her friends and family, and only to end up mad about the boy. She found she has to deal with not only what she discovers about that boy, but also the truth she realizes about herself.
Join Noor in this real life clean and wholesome romantic novel on her rollercoaster journey in the vibrant city of Beirut where she fights for her right to love and her right to build a successful career. This memoir unveils the challenges of conservative family traditions. It is a self discovery novel that unfolds a contemporary romance full of unexpected twists and turns amidst adventure, heartache, and triumph.
This page turner presents a powerful mix of words and international mood music that makes the scenes so vivid and evokes a bouquet of emotions.
Read it and laugh—before you cry!
