I think it is an important book and for a debut author, she did a phenomenal job expressing the pain and tragedy that women experience when caught in a patriarchal, old world, fanatical religious culture. The stories of 3 generations of women are woven into one in a seamless, beautiful story. So much regret, shame, pride, fear wrapped up in one story.

jamicuns I do fear that people will read this book and think it is just another example of how horrible the Muslim religion is. If this is your takeaway, I encourage you to read memoirs from women from other religions. There is fanaticism, oppression, degradation, sexism, bigotry, shame, violence in most religions. This author is just brave enough to shed light on it in her community. 11h
Caterina Good review! 😊 I thought Rum did a great job showing that the awfulness of domestic abuse, etc. was not coming from Islam but instead from the toxic patriarchal culture. I wish I could guarantee every reader would pick up on that. It's unfortunately definitely a thing for a reason that people who are oppressed/discriminated against feel pressured to close ranks and not reveal anything negative to an unkind world about their people. 😣😠💔 11h
jamicuns @Caterina I agree, she did a great job showing that it more cultural pressures vs religious beliefs. I hope readers pick up on it too. 5h

Doing a little #audiogardening while I start a new book. I‘m always unsure what to expect when a book is read by the author. So far so good on this one.

I love graphic novels, comics, and graphic nonfiction, so I put together this display to increase circulation to justify buying more! #Litsyloveslibraries

Calli was super snuggly this morning and let me read quite a bit. Enough that I finished my last read and have started this new one. Thank goodness for coffee and good company and for summer break.

I‘m bailing on this one. It‘s a little too light and slow going. I feel badly but I‘m getting psyched for my summer reading group books ...
