At the crossroads of Africa and Europe, two very different people must find their way to each other.
Emily Ryan is maxed-out on her credit cards and stranded in Morocco. Rafi Hassan expects others to obey him without question. When he throws her a financial lifeline, she wishes that he would offer her more.
Struggling to subdue the inconvenient emotions unleashed by her employer’s compelling green eyes, Emily soon clashes with his acceptance of the centuries-old traditions that dictate life in the sleepy village of Taghar. Can she persuade him to allow his teenage daughter Nour more freedom? As the seasons turn and the olives ripen, Emily despairs of winning his heart—until danger threatens from an unexpected quarter.
