Gypsy Lane: A Love Drama by Vernard Dorsey is a beautifully
written and engaging romance with a lot of drama. Ashima comes
from a typical traditional Islamic background, characterized by
sexism and stringent rules. She is intelligent and a graduate from
the Wharton School of Business, a successful consultant at
Philadelphia Finance and Trust, but her love life is nonexistent, with
a fiancé arranged for her by her billionaire father. But then she
meets Brian and what she thought could be a mere distraction in
her boring life becomes a very strong attraction. Can she risk the
wrath of her father for this man?
This is a heart-pounding romance with settings that plunge readers
into the glitz of the world of the characters, taking them on a ride
across cities like Paris and Dubai. It’s flawless, intelligently plotted
and the execution is as masterful as the plot lines are intricate. The
camaraderie that comes across in dialogues between friends like
Tez, Marty, and Brian enrich the atmosphere of the narrative and
creates a world where the characters come out vividly. It is
interesting how the author explores the conflict of cultures, creating
social and cultural commentaries that are relevant as they allow
readers a deeper understanding of the characters. Gypsy Lane: A
Love Drama seduced me by the beauty of the prose and had me
hooked, thanks to the compelling characters and Vernard Dorsey’s
