What no one expects is that when the beauty and power of the Quran, it will utterly transform the boy. Mina's may be that the Shah household, always contentious and sad, becomes a happy one. But when her own path to happiness, the ember of jealousy in Hayat's heart is enflamed by the 's anti-Semitism-and he acts with catastrophic consequences for those he loves most.
