Blog Tour: Beneath a Shooting Star

About the Book
In 1971, as a civil war
rages in Pakistan, two girls are born in the city of Lahore; Nadira to a
Sunni family, and Hameeda to a Shia family. At age six, an outspoken,
lively Nadira and her beautiful, shy classmate, Hameeda, are drawn to each
other, and they become the closest of friends. In the beginning, their
religious differences mean very little. But as the years pass and their
society fragments, their lives and their relationship are torn apart by a
horrific, sectarian tragedy. Separated, they must experience their
sorrows, hardships and joys without the support and companionship they
once provided each other. Years later when fate brings them back together
again, they have to choose whether they will let the past keep them apart,
or reclaim their dreams and the friendship they once cherished.

Author Bio

Susan Harrison Rashid was born in the United States and lived
an unremarkable life until she met and fell in love with a young man from
Pakistan. They were married in 1980 in Lahore, Pakistan. Annual visits to
Lahore and life as a member of a Pakistani family introduced her to a very
different culture and country. Always a reader, Ms. Rashid started writing
stories when she was ten years old but never imagined she could support herself
with her tales. Instead, she practiced law for twenty-four years before
retiring to follow her dream and begin her writing career. Beneath a Shooting
Star is her first novel.
