    2. What is one willing to sacrifice for love? Religion? Family? All of the above? Negeen's beautiful writing evokes a diverse set of emotions that make the reader understand the multiple facets of love. A beautiful debut romance by an author that should stay on your radar!

Taking one of history’s oldest cultural divides, the author — with her gifted ability of capturing the authentic tension of the moment — pushes the story into territories that are uncomfortable, but necessary.Through the many passionate escapades between lovers, the heart-wrenching anguish of a parent, and the seething outrage of intolerance — she straps you in tightly and brings you along on this wonderful rollercoaster ride.In the end, they say that love conquers all but they didn’t [...]


    4. Negeen Papehn’s debut novel “Forbidden by Faith” tells the incredible story of Sara,Persian Muslim and Maziar,Persian Jewish.Family,religion,customs and traditions are on the way of Sara and Maziar’s loveThe author magically and skillfully describes the Persian culture and values and that makes the book so much more than a love storyWe find ourselves in many of the scenesRealistic yet romantic and beautiful Forbidden by Faith is a must read!


    5. Negeen's beautiful prose takes us on a journey through the trials of young adulthood--of finding your own path and independence. Mix that with a love your family, friends, and faith cannot condone and the result is a series of triumphs and heartaches as felt through the heart of a young woman determined to find her way.


    6. This book highlights the heartbreaking conflict between people who fall in love of different religions. It's a soul-searching journey between the couple to decide if love can overcome all obstacles. A strong story that touches on many levels. Family, loyalty, betrayal, faith, all the elements of a deep read. Anyone who has ever been in this situation will appreciate this book.


    7. The blurb on the back of this book does not do the story between the covers justice. Forbidden by Faith isn't only a love story, it's also the story of young woman's journey of self-discovery. Sara has her plate full: pharmacy school, loving--but demanding--traditional Persian parents and family, and two hot, forbidden men who are both willing to fight for her. The author kept me guessing and I loved not knowing how this story was going to end. Papehn also did a stellar job of depicting Sara's s [...]


    8. Forbidden by faith is not your average romance, but so much more. Through the struggles of Sara and Maziar, I was given insight into a culture I didn’t know very much about. I felt the tension and the heartbreak when they had to choose between their love for each other and their families. The author weaves a web you get tangled in and creates a book you can’t put down. I highly recommend it!


    9. Sara is intelligent, passionate, devoted to her faith and family. But love doesn’t care about faith. What do you do when you are in love with someone your family is going to hate? The book starts off with a bang and I couldn’t put it down! Sara and Maziar are so touching together. Their love will melt your heart. This was such a great read and the writing is very melodic.


    10. I've never read a romance novel quite like this one. It's absolutely unique in its format, storytelling, and subject. The food, customs, and belief systems of Sara and her family really made Sara come off the page and feel like more than a character in a book. The author did a fabulous job of fully fleshing out her characters, especially her main character, and making me want to cheer Sara on in her quest for a lasting love. This was a great story and offered a different perspective than what we [...]


    11. Forbidden By Faith is a beautiful love story. Two young lovers, Sara and Maziar, are at the heart of it, but the story, like love itself, is never just about two people. It's about parents, siblings, and friends; tradition, culture, and faith. All these elements pull in two different directions until the chasm between Sara and Maziar is so wide you just don't know how, or even if, they can make a life together. Papehn reveals the raw emotions of everyone involved in this relationship, deftly pul [...]


    12. Romance novels are uncharted territory for me, but this book made me so glad I decided to do some exploring. I was hooked from the first few pages! The writing style was lovely and easy to read. This was a wonderful debut, and I can't wait to see more from Negeen Papehn.


    13. I couldn't help but think of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" while reading this book. Forbidden By Faith isn't a rom-com, but it has the same soul, one that champions love and family and tradition in a multi-cultural world. Sara, a young woman from a close Persian, Muslim family balances her growing independence during pharmacy school with the pull of familial expectations of propriety and, let's face it, parents who have trouble recognizing their little girl is all grown up. Add into this a love int [...]


    14. Wow. Just wow. What a wonderful story! Debut author Negeen Papehn brings us an amazing and modern twist on the classic Romeo and Juliet, amidst a clash of cultures and religion. Sara's story is engrossing, particularly her having to deal with her family and balancing this with her own feelings against her cultural upbringing. There were so many twists and turns, I was intrigued right to the very end. Ms Papehn's prose was just beautiful and I'm eagerly looking forward to what she has in store fo [...]


    15. Sara and Maziar are both Persian, and their parents and ancestors are from Iran.The problem is that Sara’s family is Muslim, and Maziar’s family is Jewish. If you know anything about the centuries of unrest in the Middle East, you know that the differences in religion is a huge deal. Turns out that it is also a pretty big deal between Persians living in California. Sara and Maziar, neither of whom are overly religious, are determined to make their relationship work. Maziar is confident than [...]


    16. Forbidden by Faith is a New Adult coming of age story with several twists, giving us a modern Romeo and Juliet tale where religion, culture, and class prejudice act as the hurdles for our lovers to overcome. Told in first person from one perspective throughout, author Negeen Papehn shows us the inner world of first generation Iranian Americans, and the cultural challenges they face as they navigate the divide between different religions and generational preconceptions.Sara is a Persian Muslim, f [...]


    17. I enjoyed Forbidden by Faith for its look into Persian family dynamics. Sara, an upper-twenties young woman finishing pharmacy school, meets two men, both forbidden to her by her family. The first, though Persian, was Jewish; the second Caucasian. Sara has an instant attraction to Maziar. She and Maziar break up after acknowledging that their relationship can never progress because of religious differences. Sara, on one hand, was not particularly likable because she uses Ben to fill the void in [...]
