“...I believe I would have killed Ahmed. Oh why did they prevent me? Yet...I know it is not him. He cannot be held to blame..."
A contemporary twist on the classic tale of forbidden love, Canaan Barred is the story of one man’s desperate attempt to find meaning in a world where prejudice, bigotry, and hatred conspire to destroy his humanity.
