Fifteen years ago, Krista Bremer would not have been able to imagine her life today: married to a Libyan-born Muslim, raising two children with Arabic names in the American South. Nor could she have imagined the prejudice she would encounter or the profound ways her marriage would change her perception of the world. But on a running trail in North Carolina, she met Ismail. He was passionate and sincere--and he loved adventure as much as she did. From acquaintances to lovers to a couple facing an unexpected pregnancy, this is the story of two people--a middle-class American raised in California and a Muslim raised by illiterate parents in an impoverished Libyan fishing village--who made a commitment to each other without forsaking their own identities. It is the story of a bicultural marriage--and aren't all marriages bicultural?

How we respond to difference is what shapes our families, our communities, and our world
