Audio Dramatization of Controversial Book When Her Hand Moves; by Syrian Author, Omar Imady

Virginia Beach, Virginia – Jul 11, 2022 – When Her Hand Moves by Omar Imady is released as an audiobook. This is no ordinary audiobook, the characters are played by famed voice actors Dan Akers, Chandrika Chevli, and Goldie Perry, in a rich dramatization that brings the three, suspenseful, thought-provoking, and controversial novellas into life. The book is part historical fiction, part religious conspiracy. It weaves together themes of religion, universal life questions, and those forced to flee the places they called home.

When Her Hand Moves is a lyrical symphony in three captivating movements; that combines the sensual and the sacred, the intellectual and the imaginary, the divine and the dangerous in three stories that examine, interrogate, and challenge our understanding of universal truths and spirituality.

An English nurse becomes possessed with unravelling the mystery behind the disappearance of a Syrian woman. A Syrian professor escapes Damascus only to find himself in another surreal and dangerous setting, uncovering a conspiracy that places his life in even greater peril. An Oxford scholar and an eccentric journalist embark on an adventure through Portugal and Spain seeking to decipher an ancient manuscript and uncover a religious conspiracy with explosive personal and universal implications.

Reviews for When Her Hand Moves

“Imady pairs the best of literary fiction–wry absurdity, witty interpretations of religion, and unabashed lyricism–with adrenaline-rich chase scenes, surreal sexual encounters, and moments of magical realism…”

– Publisher’s Weekly/Book Life Review

“Provocatively controversial… deeply spiritual. Imady poses questions that we have stopped asking ourselves. I don’t know another male author who can represent a woman’s voice with such authenticity.”

– Rime Allaf, Syrian Writer

“Omar Imady is one of the most important writers to come out of Syria.”

– Mary S. Lovell, New York Times best-selling biographer

“Three suspense-filled novellas replete with adrenaline-rich chase scenes, surreal sexual encounters, and moments of magical realism. These are so well written, completely gripping, so make sure you set aside many hours so that you can greedily devour them in one swoop.”
