I liked this book for its depiction of the life of women in Libyan society at this time. Malika defies the order of society when she hides the stranger, thus violating numerous "laws". I imagine that such social restriction can be both smothering and comforting to women, and I admire those with the courage to defy it.

I especially liked how they traveled from rooftop to rooftop and did a lot of things on the roof. Made me wish my roof was flat!

Highly recommended!
