This week, I made it in 145 words. Thanks, Lisa, this is a great exercise to help correct my over-writing.
There are so many of these stories they reek of cliché, about people falling in love over a cup of coffee.
This is another such story but, before you return this book to the shelf, consider the lead characters...she is an ordained Christian minister, and he a devout Muslim.
“Would you mind sharing your table, ma’am?”
“I don’t mind at all, but please, my name is Julie.”
“Hello, Julie. My name is Aashir.”
“I’m very pleased to meet you, Asher,” she said.
From this casual but very civilized beginning, comes a love story to change people, neighborhoods, towns, and eventually countries—although Julie and Aashir vowed never to try changing one another.
Their family life has had a low-key, subtle, but profound impact, the extent of which is told here in Minnie Cooper’s first but fabulous non-fiction work: Biography of a Marriage.
