Her dreams may have shattered but her awakening to Islam has given her a different peace. Then Najwa meets a younger man and slowly they begin to fall in love .;, (ISBN: 9780747579427). Very good.

Crying Wolf
Penguin Books Ltd 2001 Paperback, 352pp. It was more than a white lie. It was deception on a grand scale. But the motive was admirable - to save the bright future of a deserving young man. And the victim, too, was deserving - an arrogant billionaire who would hardly notice his loss, crumbs from a vast fortune. All the plotters needed was a believable story, desperate and frightening, but false. Nothing bad was supposed to happen. They were only crying wolf. But what if the wolf were real?, (ISBN: 9780140297393). Very good.
