A tale of love, loss and redemption. As Laila navigates her way through college and a rollercoaster relationship with Adam, she finds there are some demons she must face. Following her heart, she travels to Cape Cod, where she finds more than she bargained for.
Give like a Queen!
Wherever you go, may Queen Elyssar of Carthage inspire you in her story of resilience, resourcefulness, and belief in a place where everyone is welcome.
Queen Elyssar heard the call to leave and build a new city, Carthage, that became a hub where cultures and people came together and sailed toward the unknown.
We celebrate all women who carry families and communities in their hearts everywhere they go, towards a brighter future. They are the link between the land and the people, the wise voice of sustainable and compassionate living.
