About this ebook

Samira, a budding psychologist, is on her way to becoming the next Dr. Phil—or at least equally famous. Except that when confronted with the reality of choosing a career path, her ripe hunger for greatness conflicts with the spirit of the helping profession.

Balancing a long-distance relationship with her high school sweetheart in Nigeria and pressure to excel in her new home, she faces a life-changing dilemma. Should she stay in America, chasing the immigrant dream, or return home to be with her love interest, who might be drawn to her best friend?

Running Between Trees follows the identity crisis of an immigrant daughter while exploring the nuances of leaving one’s home in pursuit of American opportunities.
