“‘One step at a time, one breath, one life … one destiny.’ These were my mother’s famous words. She called them the steps of life.”
Zohra grows up believing that her destiny is written in the stars, that Maktoub will guide her step by step towards her own true love. When she meets the handsome Fahmi and falls in love, Zohra believes her faith is stronger than life itself. But the clash of tradition, cultural mores, personalities and unfulfilled dreams will lead their love astray, and Zohra will come to question the very basics of what her mother has taught her. Can Maktoub weather the storms of life and bring her a happy ending? Will it give their love a second chance? Set in the exotic city of Casablanca, Maktoub is a story about faith and destiny, desire and tangled love, and what it means to become masters of our own destiny.
Wife, mother, educator and writer, Najat Sinclair-Benrbia is intrigued by destiny and the power of its mystery. For her, life is an enjoyable journey of ups and downs, and writing is an entertaining adventure. Born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco, the author now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband and their two teenage children. She has published two other books: Playing Dolls, Canadian Experience Required (2015) and Whispers and Shadows (2016).
