Wednesday's Favorites: 'A Silent Prayer' by Samreen Ahsan

Welcome to Maureen's Books Wednesday's Favorites. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorites is ‘A Silent Prayer’ by Samreen Ahsan, a book I read in June 2014.  


The Book:

Adam 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.

Praise for 'A Silent Prayer':


To sum up, this book is great. Intriguing, stirring and emotional[y-charged, Samreen does an excellent job at hooking the reader, and leaving them wanting more.

Overall, this is one beautiful book well written with truly mind-blowing emotions portrayed so realistically. I can finally boast of knowing what it is like to enjoy a true, pure and unadulterated romance.

This is a very nice, clean romance with mystery and one HECK of a cliff hanger. But alas, there is a sequel, A Prayer Heeded, that I can’t wait to dive into.

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.

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.

  1. What an interesting premise! I admit it was more the author's comment about pairing paranormal with Islamic concepts that caught my interest the most though. I will have to look for this one.

    1. This definitely was an interesting book. I was afraid I wasn't going to like it when I first started since I'm not religious at all.. But I loved it. It's a great read ;)
