A sweet romance
One month before her visa expires, Fatima Dede begs her pastor to act as matchmaker and find her a Christian husband. If she returns to Mauritania, she must marry the Muslim her parents and imam picked out—or die as a martyr for her newfound faith in Jesus.
Her pastor comes up with three candidates: Stuart, a practical-minded widower with two children; Amir, a self-styled playboy who loves to spend his father’s money; and Barry, who drops out of the running when Fatima shows up late.
Time and circumstance introduce a fourth candidate: Chad, a secret admirer who finally works up the nerve to ask Fatima out. He knows nothing of her crisis, and she’s afraid to tell him, lest this serendipitous chance of romance fly away.
Will Fatima find the courage to reveal her plight?
