Gravity is a work of fiction in the romantic drama genre, aimed at all audiences, and was written by author Mona Sedrak. The story follows a Middle Eastern medical assistant who has been expelled from her family along with her child. She meets a photographer who manages to see a beauty in her that the rest of the world is only too keen to pass over. As their feelings pull them irrevocably towards each other, our heroine struggles to deny the bond she still feels to the family who rejected her. In order to have a happy life moving forward, she’ll have to come to terms with everything that’s come before.

In a truly heartfelt and highly relatable story of human emotions and a sense of belonging, author Mona Sedrak really knows how to tap into deep insecurities and feelings of the heart. As a central protagonist, Leila Solomon is deeply realistic in her intrinsic motivations, especially in her love for her child and her deep desire to achieve what she wants in the future with Aiden. Sedrak’s closeness to Leila in the narrative lets us feel her experience with every emotional high and low, bringing us close to her inner thoughts and agonizing feelings over the rejection by her family. What results is a powerful drama led by its main characters and their conflicts, with a narrative power that makes it feel as though we’re hearing the heartbreaking tale from the lips of a friend. Overall, I’d highly recommend Gravity as a must-read for fans of women’s fiction, emotive high drama and realistic fiction novels.
