Sameer Zahr's novel Rima's Dreams: Love Is All There Is sounds like a fantasy: A young and very beautiful woman reinvents herself, from concert pianist into a supermodel. Through it all, she maintains her high moral values and uses her success to help others have better lives. But Rima's Dreams is based in fact, as Zahr was inspired by a real-life version of her main character. This deepens the pleasure for the listeners. Rima's Dreams is not fantasy at all: this romantic experience is real.
