The critically acclaimed novelist behind top 2014 bestseller Yellow Crocus, Laila Ibrahim tackles a subject directly out of the headlines in Living Right [Flaming Chalice Press, April 18, 2016]. An intimate story about a mother’s struggle to reconcile her religious beliefs with her son’s sexual orientation, Living Right strips away the politics of LGBTQ rights to reveal the life and death stakes in this ongoing conflict: family.

As a wife and mother to young adults, Ibrahim knows the struggles parents face with growing and unexpected changes like sexual identity and faith.
