really liked it
Read from February 03 to 10, 2010

I really like the way Soheir Khashoggi writes a novel. This story involves a couple who live in NYC with their family, The husband, Karim, originally from Jordan decides that living in the west is not in the best interest of his young children, and takes them back to Jordan, against the mothers consent.
While this a heart wrenching experience for any parent to live through, the reader cannot hate Karim totally for what he has done as he is not portrayed as evil, but just someone who is a product of their culture and only wants the best for his children.
A couple of side stories exist as well , I think some of them are just filler for the novel, only one is necessary.
I still enjoyed the book ,it reads very well, but I liked Khashoggi's work in another novel "Nadia's Song" much more.
