May in the Summer

May in the Summer

May has it all—a celebrated book, a sophisticated New York life and a terrific fiancé. But when she heads to Amman, Jordan, to plan her wedding, she lands in a bedlam of family chaos. Her Christian mother disapproves of her marrying a Muslim and threatens to boycott the wedding. Her younger sisters lean on her like children, and her estranged father suddenly comes out of the woodwork. Meanwhile, doubts about her marriage surface, and May’s carefully structured life spins out of control.
