Being queen can be stressful, but it helps to have a supportive partner who’s also a professional chef. Read about their latest adventures in Climbing the Date Palm, the sequel to The Second Mango.
Queen Shulamit is eager to help Kaveh, the youngest prince of a neighboring country, when his father throws his engineer boyfriend in jail for leading his workers in protest over underpaid wages. But if she can’t find a peaceful solution that will keep everybody happy, the two countries could wind up at war.
