really liked it

A fascinating autobiography by a Moroccan who is now a professor at a university in Rabat, Morocco. She presents a balanced view of the positives and negatives of growing up as a girl in a harem with many other children and their mothers. While there were some restrictions that Westerners might find annoying, there were many happy times and a feeling of love and community unique to the harem. Well worth reading.
