I wanted to know if the author would answer the many questions swarming in my thoughts about Mahad and Sadia. What I didn’t expect was for their relationship to be tested at a new level in Love’s Culture II.
I have a new found appreciation for Sadia’s mom, Lynn. At first I couldn’t grasp the character because she appeared to be jealous and didn’t support her daughter’s dreams. But now Lynn Lemore is a force to be reckoned with. A force that even Alton, Sadia’s father, questions from time to time. When it comes to Alton’s baby girl, no one better jeopardize her happiness. Despite Sadia’s calm and mild-mannered ways, she has her mom’s feisty, no-nonsense attitude. Readers, you will get a glimpse when she comes face to face with a musician who’s married, but enjoys his playboy ways.
Mahad has enough to deal with regarding his father’s apprehensiveness, and the last thing he wants is for his personal life to be disrupted. Now that Dona Donaldson is back in Jacksonville her eyes are set on the man she never forgot, but she’s a married man’s playmate. Having a hard time accepting she was nothing more to Mahad than “past time”, she has no limits proving him wrong. Until…
Sadia goes beyond the unthinkable to gain the respect of Mahad’s family. But will her efforts go unrecognized when his father and sister arrive in the U.S. unannounced? A picture perfect moment was when Sadia greeted his father in his native language. Not only was he rendered speechless, but Mahad was also unaware. At that moment, Mahad knew Sadia had his heart forever with or without his family’s approval. For Sadia she needed, wanted his father’s blessing because of the love shared with her own parents.
The question remains, can love surpass cultural differences?
