Reseña del editor
The Kingdom of Morocco is a quiet, conservative country. At least it was before Karly Winfield arrived. Her best years may be in the rearview mirror, but buxom Karly can still turn heads. Traveling with her portly husband, from the exotic suuqs of Marrakech to the High Atlas Mountains to medieval Fes, Karly leaves a trail of cultural faux pas in her wake as the middle-aged couple bickers its way across North Africa. However, impressions change when the Winfields encounter strange phenomena in the lonely and ancient village of Tiz Tisgui, located high in the barren mountains of central Morocco. In this isolated locale that evokes a prior age, villagers believe in Jinn and other supernatural beings, while incorporating their steadfast Islamic faith into their humble daily existence. Without warning, science, religion, and everything in between begin to collide in unexpected ways. Even the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Morocco and the President of the United States are unable to stave off catastrophe. The best they can hope for is to somehow contain the ensuing damage. In the aftermath of the events they were unexpectedly thrust into, Morocco in general and Karly Winfield in particular, find themselves changed, down to their very cores. Neither will ever be the same. When Worlds Collide is, in turn, a travelogue, a mystery, and a comedy. But, most importantly, it's about being human and learning to coexist.

Once they enter the small town of Tiz Tisgul, the Moslem men call Kent and Karly witches when weird, geological anomalies suddenly take place, and after Kent pulls a dead body out of a tourist cave. Their riat manager tries to tell them what the villagers think of them and why.
It isn't until the Rita's manager's wife tells them to see a science professor when they reach Fez, that they learn about the ancient Moslem superstitions of jinn and an ifirat, and their coexistence with modern scientific thought and how compatible science and religion really is. Were the Winfields on to simple tricks played by the evil jinn or is the end of the earth as we know it absolutely imminent? Will the Winfields be kicked out of Morrocco before their sight seeing is over? Only by reading this treasure will you find out for sure. You will love every bit of it as much as I did!
Thank you to Mr. Rick Parker, Green Ivy Publishing, and Word Slinger for giving me a book to read in exchange for my honest review.
An advanced copy of this book was provided for an honest review.
Not only did he bring to life a country that I have never been to, he made it possible to insert myself into his book and follow along with the main characters Kent and Karly who are just in Morocco on vacation…so they seem to think anyways.
