Saffron Dreams is a tale of love, tragedy, and redemption from the award-winning author of Beyond the Cayenne Wall...

You don't know you're a misfit until you are marked as an outcast.

From the darkest hour of American history emerges a
mesmerizing tale of tender love, a life interrupted, and faith
recovered. Arissa Illahi, a Muslim artist and writer, discovers in a
single moment that no matter how carefully you map your life,
it is life itself that chooses your destiny. After her husband's death
in the collapse of the World Trade Center, the discovery of his
manuscript marks Arissa's reconnection to life. Her unborn son
and the unfinished novel fuse in her mind into one life-defining
project that becomes, at once, the struggle for her emotional
survival and the redemption of her race. Saffron Dreams is a
novel about our ever evolving identities and the events and places
that shape them. It reminds us that in the midst of tragedy, our
dreams can become a lasting legacy.

The Academic edition of Saffron Dreams includes an Instructor's Manual containing discussion topics
and questions for each chapter. Educators can use this manual in their classrooms to stimulate critical
thinking, explore key themes of the novel, and brainstorm decisions and actions of the characters at
various points. This edition also contains a suggested reading list, glossary, and recipes of dishes mentioned in the novel
