Shamila is a Muslim student at Marseille University at a time when the city is under threat from terrorism. Ethnic tensions are rising. Then one day while jogging, she meets a fellow student, Victor. It is the beginning of a friendship that rapidly grows into something more. But Victor is not a Muslim and her family don’t approve. What happens next will plunge them both into danger and change their lives forever. This is a tense, page-turner of a novel and could not be more topical, given current events.
