Read in March, 2012

I enjoyed Minaret years ago and came across this book when browsing at my library. Leila Aboulela is a beautiful writer and this story set in Sudan was compelling. I hadn't known about Sudan's shared history with Egypt and that it had been a British colony in pretty recent history. Before its more well-known and recent history of civil war and unrest, Sudan was becoming a pretty cosmopolitan place, with inhabitants often grappling the line between traditional Sudanese culture and that of the Western world.
