The Shores Of Our Souls

the debut novel by

Kathryn Brown Ramsperger

A Journey of Discovery
A Legacy of Love

“Pitch perfect writing…More than a romance, more than a cultural exploration, The Shores Of Our Souls helped me better understand our own complicated world.”

– Tami Lewis Brown, Award-winning Author of Soar, Elinor! and The Map of Me

Culture shaped them. 
Chance united them.
Love transformed them.
Running from the past and toward each other, their secrets will determine their destiny.

The Shores of Our Souls takes the reader on a journey of discovery – blending the story-telling traditions of Southern literature with the intrigue of the developing world. 


This is the story of Qasim, an Arab Muslim U.N. official, fleeing family obligations in war – torn between Lebanon and Dianna, who’s escaping her rural Southern roots to become a researcher at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Taking the reader from New York City to the bucolic beauty of the Carolinas and into the salons of Beirut, The Shores of Our Souls juxtaposes the personal and political landscape of fledgling lovers.


War is one of the most powerful backdrops for any love story. Love, on the other hand, is personal, ethereal, and possesses its own power to change the world. Ramsperger’s debut novel is the first in a trilogy and introduces a cast of memorable characters that gives an entirely new perspective on the controversial conflicts in our hearts and in our history.
