About the book:
Side by Side (New Hope Publishers, April 2015)

In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia's life collides with that of another young woman.

A young Christian American mother, Mia finds more than one dark secret on the streets of Khartoum. She finds Halimah, a young, upper-class Arab student with a bright future in her family's business whose risky and secretive decision has put her life in danger. What happens when the path of young mother intersects with that of a spunky Sudanese student? God transforms them both . . . forever.

Part of New Hope® Publishers' contemporary missional fiction line, Side by Side opens the reader's eyes to the life of Muslims in Sudan as well as some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as pray for the salvation of those who persecute.

This was a brave book to write. It was very real, my heart broke for the Muslim girls and how they are treated like property. I loved Mia, her desire to meet and witness to Muslim women was real and encouraging. While this is written as a novel, it reminds me of the Missionary books I read as a kid. It was a good book, filled with great detail about not only Sudan, and the people, but the reality of Americans living there.
Recommended.
