Desire and Prejudice
Desire and Prejudice is about the healing power of true lovemaking and the damning power of ethnic bias.
When Jasmine and Adam first meet, they are both totally caught by surprise; their inner feelings are the magnetic force that draws them to each other. Their burning desires toward one another are unstoppable, but they are condemned by their separate lives – he is a French official and she is a Muslim.
They find ways to be with each other when they couldn’t.
The poetic letter takes the reader into the minds of two lovers desperately wanting one another, but each holding back because of their cultural backgrounds and the fear of getting caught in their dangerous game. The erotic descriptions are vivid enough, but scarcely the right quantity of description to know precisely what is going on.
Desire and Prejudice is much more than “boy meets girl, they fall in love”; it tells a realistic, believable story that readers haven’t heard before.
These characters, nor the twisted end of the story, are definitely not the stereotypical a reader can predict.
