Torn between two cultures—allegiance to two families—a
child in the middle
Nicole Nelson and Ahmed Masud are a dynamic, highly
successful Philadelphia couple. They are partners in a
thriving plastic surgery practice, are very much in love,
and they adore their young son, Alex. But cracks are
beginning to appear in their fairy-tale life: lingering
post-9/11 prejudice against Arab men, accumulating
malpractice lawsuits for Ahmed, and most recently, pressure
from Ahmed’s wealthy family in Cairo for him to return to
Egypt—permanently—with his son.
The Masud family pressure becomes a demand as the Hosni
Mubarak regime is seriously threatened by protestors in
Egypt. Ahmed’s family owes their control of the Egyptian
cotton empire directly to Mubarak cronyism. If Mubarak goes
down, the Masuds will surely lose their wealth, maybe even
their lives. They need Ahmed back in Egypt to implement
their plan to move their fortune and family out of Egypt and
into South America.
Ahmed must make a decision—stay with Nicole in America or
obey his father. And what about their son?
Tragic consequences, which Ahmed could have never foreseen,
propel both the Masud family and the Nelson family on a path
toward unspeakable tragedy.
