Noor and Charlie have been torn apart. Noor is now in Saudi Arabia, the fourth wife of a radical Prince. Charlie is back in the United States, bruised and battered, after his deportation from Pakistan.
For each of them there is a temptation, however dire it may seem. For Noor, it is to accept her new situation and to assimilate into the Prince's family as best she can. After all she believes Charlie is dead. For Charlie it is to accept that he will never see Noor again and to move on with his life.
But neither succumbs to these temptations. Noor yearns to be free, while Charlie yearns to free her. And so in the face of incredible odds each sets a plan in motion to achieve their goal.
In Resilience, the second novel of the Refuge Trilogy, N.G.Osborne continues Noor and Charlie's epic story and in turn the resilience of their very love is tested.
