Anissa of Syria: A Christian Refugee’s Saga from the Syrian War to the American Dream

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Anissa is a young woman traumatized by the most brutal conflict of the 21st Century: the Syrian Civil War. 

In 2012, Islamists in Homs terrorize a Syrian-Christian community and destroy everything that she holds dear. Narrowly escaping death, Anissa restarts her devastated life as a college student in New York City. She is bewildered and lost, but hopeful for a better life in a new land.

Anissa is soon drawn to two powerful individuals: Michael Kassab, the Syrian-American leader working to found the first Mideast Christian state, and Julien Morales, her Columbia University professor who runs a $20 billion hedge fund.

But Michael is still attached to his ex-girlfriend and Julien is the most sought after bachelor in Manhattan (and has hidden demons that even his therapist can't extract). 

The most personal secrets are revealed through Anissa's heartfelt diary, Julien's journal, and Michael's confessions. When shocking lies and truths surface, intimacy and trust are rocked to their core.

Julien or Michael? Anissa's heart and her communal ties pull her in different directions, as she seeks hope and renewal in a dark world.

Anissa of Syria might be compared to The Kite Runner, Exodus, and The Diary of Anne Frank.

NOTE: This is a "clean read" edition of The Syrian Virgin (i.e., this version has no profanity and just a few, brief scenes of minimally described intimacy without reference to any explicit details or sexual anatomy). Due to war themes, this book is not recommended for readers under 16.
