Read full description of the books:
And years later, when she finally evolved a mind that could examine itself, she wondered how such concepts as fear of her own thoughts, shame of her own bodythe very vessel that nature fashioned and her soul adornedarose at all. When did her body become something alienseparate from her? So begins UNBOWED, the story of Basma, an obedient wife who makes an unwitting decision with far-reaching consequences. Filled with sex, forbidden love, shocking brutality, unflinching feminist prose, and chador-wearing gladiators carrying AK-47s, nevertheless, UNBOWED is a story of Hope. Set in present day cosmopolitan cities of New York, London and Paris, with their burgeoning immigrant populations, and spanning other international locales, UNBOWED weaves together three plot lines to illuminate the violent extremes some patriarchal cultures have gone toto reinforce absolute power over women and girlsand the equally extreme, yet opposite, paths three women embark on, to change the game.

Read information about the authorAmerican born, Lestine has lived in Europe, with stays in India and Greece.
She graduated magna cum laude from the CUNY Graduate Center with a B.A. in Creative Writing and Documentary Filmmaking. She has made films, written poetry, short stories and songs.
“I've been an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction, from a very young age. But, I prefer to write fiction because of the sheer freedom it gives the imagination, and the intellect, to express ideas and concepts, and to explore the complicated issues in life that we all struggle with. And, what better way to connect to other human beings than through the intimacy of a story.”
UNBOWED is Lestine’s first novel, based on her original screenplay. Another ‘controversial’ novel, plus a sequel to Unbowed, is in the works.
She resides in New York City.
"I was first introduced to books by my mother when I was a child. We had a
bookcase with works by Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, Charles Dickens and Emily Bronte, to name a few. Books saved me. They were my lifeline to help me understand the world. They are intimate friends. The very idea that a human being was sharing their most inner thoughts, ideas, fantasies, passions, fears, conflicts, perceptions, and secrets--in their books--with me, makes me feel connected to them.
My mother dreamed of being a journalist, but never came close to realizing her dream. But now I am experiencing one of my dreams: My first novel published that she would have been proud of.
Something no one knows about me (until now) is that one of my favorite things to do is to lose myself writing at my computer for hours, while sipping a light hazelnut coffee and a blueberry muffin from Zucker's in Tribeca or Whole Foods."
