Review 'A Silent Prayer' by Samreen Ahsan

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20831904-a-silent-prayerAdam Gibson is a young and powerful Toronto millionaire. Despite his many blessings, he is an atheist, though he has an altruistic soul. He denies there is a God--until he meets a beautiful stranger in a place that does not exist for anyone but him.

Rania Ahmed strongly believes in God, but has lost hope she will ever find her soul mate. Endowed with hypnotic beauty and cursed by a brutal past, Rania has no idea she has cast a spell on Adam, who has never received more from a woman than physical pleasure. As Adam slowly discovers the true meaning of love from Rania, he begins to face his demons and reconsider his beliefs. He learns to love, forgive and repent. But as Adam grows closer to Rania, a series of strange, unexplained events threatens to drive them apart. To keep her from being destroyed by her past, he must persuade her to trust him with her deepest secrets.

In this spiritual romance, an atheist embarks on a path of enlightenment with a tormented soul who may just have the power to change everything he has ever believed to be true.

A couple of weeks ago I received ‘A Silent Prayer’ by Samreen Ahsan in exchange for an honest review. When I first read the Blurb of this book I was honestly nog quiet sure if this book was really something for me. I’m not religious and when I read words like blessings, God and soul I was a little afraid that this book would be to religious for me. But I still wanted to give this book a try. And I’m so happy I did.

In ‘A Silent Prayer’ we meet Adam Gibson a young and handsome multi-millionaire who lives in Toronto. Gibson is the youngest business mogul of Canada and whatever he wants, he gets. Gibson uses woman for his pleasure and he doesn’t believe in relationships. That is until he meets Rania Ahmed. Rania is a twenty-five year old Senior Creative Designer with a very bad and haunting past.  Rania doesn’t want anything to do with men and she keeps every guy at arm’s length. But from the moment Adam meets Rania he is enchanted by her beauty and personality. Adam won’t stop until he can call Rania his. But Adam soon finds out that Rania is very stubborn, don’t cares for money and doesn’t fall for his charms. At least that is what he thinks. Not only Rania’s past keeps her from opening up to Adam. Rania is Muslim and has a strong believe in God. Adam at the other hand is an Atheist who only believes in himself. But still Adam can’t stop thinking about Rania and will do anything to be with her.

From the moment I started reading this book I was completely hooked. Samreen Ahsan is a very passionate writer and I quickly fell in love with this story and the characters. I seriously couldn’t stop reading. I wanted and needed to know what would happen next. This book was not only very romantic but it was also very exciting and funny. For example the part where two characters are discussing a certain handsome professor who lives in Toronto. I immediately knew what book they were talking about so I giggled along with them. This book was just very addicting.

The character I liked the most was definitely Rania. Although I’m not religious at all I really liked her passion for her believe. She doesn’t care what other people think, her faith is strong and nobody can change this about her. But she also doesn’t try to get other people to believe in what she does. She chooses to tell Adam about her believes but she doesn’t try to change him into believing. And I really liked that about her.

What I also really like about this book is that we read not only Adam’s point of view but also Rania’s. You really get to know both characters. I love that.

I really loved this story (maybe you didn’t know that through reading my review :p) and its definitely going on my favorite list. I honestly can’t believe this book hasn’t got more publicity. This book should be lying in all the bookstores so everyone can read it. I can’t wait to read the next book about Adam and Rania. 
 

About the Author:


History, art and literature are my passions. I love digging out information about prophecies, divine miracles and paranormal events that are mentioned in history and holy books, that don’t sound possible in today's modern world.

Since childhood, I have been into reading and writing—and yes, it can’t happen without imagination, which luckily has no boundaries. Dance and music are also pastimes I enjoy, as well as reading romance fiction. I love to travel and explore historical cities.

"A Prayer Series" is my first story about paranormal events based on Islamic concepts.
