This is the trailer my Husband and I made for for my first novel, published in 2007, and still in print at Romance At Heart Publications:
In 1976, shortly before the Fourth of July, teenage Arab immigrant Rama Chandra moves with his family to a small Michigan suburb. At the local high school he meets Bess Hawkins, a teen orphan whose uncle, Jason Trask, is the richest man in town. Seeing a bruise on her face, Rama suspects Jason has been beating Bess. To save her from such abuse, Rama carries Bess off and hides her at his farm. Under the watchful eyes of Rama's grandmother, love blossoms between the two young people, until Jason learns where Bess is hiding. This forces a confrontation that teaches the whole town a lesson in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
