Jamila Nassar's life circumstances equated her father's behavior to that of the dogmatic and legalistic Allah he believed in. Mistreated by beatings and Islamic edicts, she rose to develop into the woman her mother had always intended. As a BBC reporter, she discovers a soulmate in Bobby Harris, a Christian Marine, on the battlefield of Iraq. Little did she know that raising their child alone would not only bring consequences but rewards she couldn't foresee. By raising a child, rediscovering family, and reporting some of the biggest news headlines of her time, she realizes what it truly means to be selfless.
Arlo discovers his grandson's soulmate and her daughter, just before his own daughter passes away. Jamila Nassar is a BBC television journalist who, after a sterling career in London, visits her lost family in America and becomes assigned as the BBC's foreign correspondent. Living with her beloved's grandfather in America brings its own challenges. Raising a daughter, reporting the news around the country, and dealing with her own feelings of love lost, are only a few of the many crossroads she must traverse. But the biggest crossroad of all is in rectifying her own beliefs and finally understanding all that she was meant to be and why. Events from France, Iraq, Puerto Rico, and across America bring the intrepid reporter new understandings and cause her to deliberately search for the truths that have eluded her for so long.
