After Michael's wife, Celeste, is diagnosed with terminal cancer they embark on a journey around the world, seeking salvation and healing.

Will her involvement in his vast, mysterious, and at times unethical experiment spell deliverance for Hamida as well as for Michael?
Description
When modern science fails to save his wife Celeste, Michael turns to religion. When religion fails to cure her, he is left searching for answers. From his grief flows anger, determination, and finally the plan – a meticulous experiment to unravel the truth in one of civilization's most controversial topics … the concept of God. At the heart of this plan is Hamida Begum. A young woman of depth and intelligence, heiress to a lost lineage. Selected and prepared. Qualified in ways even Michael could never have anticipated. Will her involvement in this vast, mysterious, and at times unethical endeavor deliver resolution? This literary work, with a touch of magical realism, The Celeste Experiment, is the story of one man's attempt to sever the spiritual threads of history once and for all. It is a thrilling journey of revenge and conviction, sorrow and rage, design and entrapment, and the message of whispered words. A tale where no one and nothing is vindicated … except love.
About the author
Omar Imady is an uncommon collection of many things – poet, historian, novelist, Syrian, American, exile, Sufi, 'Alan Wattsian', cat lover, avid coffee drinker, insatiable gastronome – all of which find expression in his growing repertoire of eclectic fiction. He is the author of multiple books, including The Gospel of Damascus, a 2012 Book of the Year Award finalist, and When Her Hand Moves, a collection of three controversial, thought-provoking novellas. His forthcoming novels dig ever deeper into the human experience of alienation and the quest for meaning in a world increasingly hostile to answers.
