it was amazing
bookshelves: middle-eastern-women, favorites
Read in July, 2011

I was a little worried that this memoir was going to be all about religion. I have christian beliefes, but don't attend church regularly, and so I was not looking forward to reading 288 pages of a religious testimonial. I'm so glad I went ahead and gave this book a go! Although the author talks about her faith, and conversion from islam to christianity she doesn't get carried away with it.
Everytime I think I have heard it all I stumble upon a book like this one. I was truelly shocked at the things that this woman had to go through as a child, and how her family's faith alone was able to hide so much abuse.
This is absolutely one of my favorite books. This memoir covers so much! Once you pick this book up you wont want to put it down!
