Publisher's Summary

The Road from Morocco recounts the extraordinary life of Saadia and her daughter Wafa. It transports readers back in time to a Middle Eastern society far removed from modern American sensibilities—to Morocco, where Saadia was born and wed against her will at thirteen.

Based on recorded history and family memories, the book chronicles Saadia's arranged marriage and hardships as a young mother to Wafa, a French-educated, sexually liberated Muslim woman, who traveled to Europe and then to America, reaching a top position on Wall Street—in theory, the fulfillment of her American dream but in reality an overwhelming experience that threatens everything she holds dear.

Like the best of fiction, this is an intensely personal emotional rollercoaster tale full of twists and turns, which make it hard to put down. In the words of a reader: "It's beautiful even in the heartbreaking moments and utterly exquisite in the pleasant ones."

What the Critics Say

"The more I read into Wafa Faith Hallam's The Road from Morocco, the more I realized I was holding a book that—if all literary lights are not dimmed by convention—should become an instant classic. I honestly cannot recall a time when an autobiographical account has spoken to me as forcefully as Hallam’s memoir." (Professor A. Majid, University of New England, Portland, Maine)

    "Wafa's Life Journey"

    My iPad followed me around with The Road from Morocco playing as I walked on my treadmill, in the bathroom as I showered and as I ate my breakfast. Get the picture? Following Wafa's life journey from Morocco, I felt I was living with Wafa via Kalisha's narration. Kalisha's voice was pleasant and very expressive. I could not wait to listen. I'm sad I finished the book. Wafa is a talented writer using descriptive language. I highly, highly recommend this book. I want a sequel!
