Description from the publisher: 

Jameelah Salih is a 27 year Muslim woman born to what appears to be one of the inner city's stronger blended American Muslim families. She works as a hair stylist with her two best friends in the city's only Muslim women's owned and operated hair salon, Covered Pearls. On appearance and material possessions alone Jameelah seems to be doing okay. What most don't know is that she is one traffic jam away from losing control of her life. Post 9/11 stresses seem to be creating negative impacts on everyone around her. Jameelah feels as though she is walking on eggshells and questions her own place in society. She prays for a change, but what will she do if change actually comes?

When a prominent Imam proposes marriage to Jameelah she feels as if it's the blessing that she has been waiting for from Allah. She knows marrying him will change her life, but when unexpected crisis erupts and family secrets are exposed, Jameelah is forced to make hard choices and put her complete faith in the only One unable to break it.
