Set in Syria on the cusp of political unrest, A Word for Love tells the story of Bea, a young American woman who travels around the world to study “The Astonishing Text,” an ancient, original manuscript of a famous Arabic love story that is said to move its best readers to tears. In her search, Bea finds herself transformed by language, risk, war, and a startling new understanding of love.
