Soon to be Released: Ripples, by Jamilah Kolocotronis

Ripples will be published by Muslim Writers Publishing and is the fourth book in the Echoes series of novels, by Jamilah Kolocotronis. As the copyeditor of this book, I learned a tremendous amount and was very pleased to work with such a team of outstanding professionals.

If you're not familiar with this groundbreaking series of novels, I suggest you read the books, which cover the chronicles of an American family in Chicago whose family members are gradually introduced to Islam. Sister Jamilah does not just write about her characters - she makes them come to life in so many ways.

If you are a convert to Islam, you will almost certainly identify with the trials of the Adams family. In the past, Sister Jamilah has tackled sensitive topics like alcoholism, drug addiction, racism, and abuse. In Ripples, she deals with interfaith relations, cross-cultural marriage, disabilities, and so much more...all from an Islamic perspective. Stay tuned to learn how to order the book (soon to be released), and get a headstart reading the books you may have missed: Echoes, Rebounding, and Turbulence.
