Our county library system sponsors "Silicon Valley Reads" annually. This year's theme is getting to know our Muslim neighbor's Islam beliefs and religious practices. There are books for children and young adults. This is the second, and definitely my favorite of the two adult selections.
It is the story of a modern American young woman, whose parents are atheists, and have raised her in their non-belief. She begins to convert to Islam while she is a student at Boston University. After graduation she moves to Egypt to teach in an English language College. What a wonderfully insightful trip it is. I am so glad she took me along.
