There's nothing like receiving a letter from a teenage son you knew nothing about, but that's what happens to international rock star, Jonathon Stone. He drops everything to find the boy, and his mother, the girl he loved so many years ago who left him when his rock n roll life became too much for her to bear.

Seeing her is like falling in love all over again, and everything seems perfect, until someone sets out to destroy their idyllic life.

It felt as if the universe itself had opened to welcome us into its embrace . . . It still feels that way to me, Naomi, every time we are together. It feels that way when you walk into a room and I see you. Now that I have you back, I feel the unbearable emptiness of those years without you. I was selfish, distracted, and uncaring. You should never have had to endure what you did, and I should have fought a lot harder to find you again . . .

Mariam Kobras was born in Frankfurt, Germany,and currently lives in Hamburg with her husband and two sons. After studying American Literature and Archeology at Giessen University she spent several months in Toronto, Canada. Mariam has worked as an English tutor, served as a lay Judge in Juvenile Court, and managed the rookie Hamburg Blue Devils American football team. Most recently she founded the Theater Project at a local Hamburg High School where she wrote and staged plays. The huge success of this venture gave her the courage to try her hand at a novel.When her husband gave her a laptop for Christmas three years ago, to encourage her writing, she was off and running. Within a year she had written the first draft of her book. The storyline for The Distant Shore was inspired by her fascination with the limitations fame can impose on people. Her book explores the value of love in a world where money and a front-page photo are sometimes more important than a person's soul.
