At the Crossroad is a book targeted to the female audience that covers passion, forbidden love, faith and power. The book follows four main characters: a dashing medical student filled with so much promise, his beautiful but naïve girlfriend who doesn’t realize her strengths, a carefree girlfriend, whose troubled life brings happiness but also tragedy and a handsome military officer, strong but unwilling to bend his religious beliefs.
At the Crossroad was written by first time author, Olfet Agrama, a native of Cairo, Egypt. Her book is based on real people she knew growing up in the Middle East during the 1950s and 1960s. The characters personal relationships are affected by military and political events occurring in Egypt during that time. Their lives are filled with a range of emotions that includes sexual tension, loneliness, elation, confusion, fulfillment, humiliation and hope.
