This book was incredible.
I picked it up because I was looking for some literature inspired by or related to Islamic culture, and this book delivered. As I was travelling in southern Spain, with the tiles and beautiful of old Moorish architecture, I was reading about the struggle of women straddling lines of culture between Palestine and New York City.
One character is married young and sent to live with her in-laws in New York, with a husband that never allows her outside. One character is struggling to avoid the marriage that is barreling down at her. One character is dealing with ghosts in her past.
This book was wonderful, gorgeously written, and I couldn’t put it down.
