Abbey’s Search For Sanctuary – Psychiatric nurse, Abbey, shelters her younger sister after she divorces her Muslim husband who has agreed to his mother’s plan to perform a circumcision on their infant daughter, Jenny. When her sister is murdered by her ex-husband in a so-called “honor killing”, Abbey knows she must find a way to keep Jenny safe. Once a Peshmerga fighter and medic with the Kurdish forces in Iraq, Rami now works as a psychiatrist in Buffalo, NY and devotes his spare time to helping refugees. Shunned by his grandfather and family for failing to demand retribution when his arranged marriage failed, Rami avoids emotional attachments. That is until he meets Abbey. Warning Abbey that honor killings are often family affairs and that she and Jenny are in danger, Rami offers her a way out: an annullable marriage of convenience and refuge in Kurdistan, his homeland. Abbey is committed to doing anything to protect Jenny but can she risk going back to the world of her childhood: a world of headscarves and submission, a world that scarred her mother and killed her sister, a world she’d already escaped once?
