The Latest from Carolina Book Beat

Danger of Love by Maryam Tabibzadeh (broadcast 9-8-2014) Marjan is the daughter of a Kashvili chieftain, the most powerful man in their province in Persia. Beautiful and educated, she was married at age nine to a rich merchant who is absent for months at a time. Russ is a British Christian missionary doctor stationed in Shiraz just as World War II is breaking out.

When Marjan and Russ meet, in spite of all the obstacles between them—his deep Christian beliefs, her married life, the different cultures they grow up in, and the fact that they could be stoned to death for engaging in an affair—they fall in love. Drama, tragedy and love in its many forms are told in this story. Find out more at ncwriters.org/2014-01-07-18-35-09/book-buzz/5646-danger-of-love-by-maryam-tabibzadeh
