Her Doomed Destiny

Author Interview
Amir Barghi Author Interview

Sarah follows the story of a woman who’s caught in the grip of an abusive man and is changed by the experience. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

The story of Sarah is not a new one. It might have happened for thousands of women in history who were persuaded to marry much older men or sold by their family. Most of them succumbed and accepted their fate but Sarah was different. She apparently had everything a young girl wished to have, even a young sexual partner, and her old husband didn’t care. However, it wasn’t the life she wished to have. She wanted her freedom and it was so interesting to me because few people are like her.

Sarah is an intriguing character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

Sarah not only has a beautiful face but she also has a beautiful soul. She is not just a sex object. I wanted her lover to see and understood that, too. Sarah betrayed her husband; she broke all societal norms and still wanted to go back. She wanted to make a new family with her lover and live like an ordinary woman but society usually doesn’t forget or forgive such a reckless, bold woman, and either punishes her harshly or simply exiles her. In most stories they don’t have a happy ending. They commit suicide like Anna Karenina or Madam Bovary. I know this is closer to real life, but I don’t like this ending. Therefore, just a revolution could change her doomed destiny and society might ignore her reckless behavior.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

I think love and hate are the most important themes for me to explore in most of my stories. I believe a good story must follow just one general theme, not more than one. As one of my professors always told me: ”A story with too many themes just confuses the readers.” I tried to explore the concept of different types of love in my story, because I think the colonel and Sam both loved Sarah in different ways. The colonel loved her as his possession and Sam loved her as a human being.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I have already written 10 books; two were translated and published on Amazon, Sarah and Devil’s Garden. I am actually working on others to translate and publish as well. I think my next book will be the story about a poor girl who manages to rescue a mentally sick prince with music and her magical songs. This time a female character will save the soul of a young man.
