DREAMING IN ENGLISH
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
Fitzgerald’s sequel to Veil of Roses can easily stand alone. This book has it all: hope, love, family, heartbreak and joy. The reader will want to cheer on Tami and Ike. Belief in oneself and freedom are key components, as are the challenges of a cross-cultural relationship. The book reminds us of how lucky we are to be in America and the price for the freedom that many take for granted.
Tami Soroush is preparing to meet Ike Hanson’s parents, who are less than thrilled to learn of their spur-of-the-moment marriage. They believe Tami is manipulating Ike in order to get a green card. When things take an unexpected turn, Tami’s dream of freedom in America is threatened. Faced with the possibility of Tami being deported back to Iran, Tami and Ike are determined to prove that their love is genuine. (NAL, Feb., 432 pp., $15.00)
