I would not recommend this book at all. The author has no historical or factual information about Islam whatsoever, and even quotes chapters from the Quran that don’t even exist!! If this is so, then how credible is the rest of her book?????

Having spent a great deal of her career as a journalist in Islamic countries, Geraldine Brooks has had the opportunity to get to know the cultures intimately, especially from a woman’s perspective. Her accounts of both intriguing and appalling aspects of Muslim women’s lives are frankly presented. Although the reader is at times made to feel an agenda, even one to sympathize with, the author does a decent job of simply presenting the facts as she has experienced or observed them. Recommended.

Before she wrote fiction, (People of the Book, March, Year of Wonders), Geraldine Brooks was an award - winning reporter who often reported from the Middle East. She wrote this daring and fascinating look at women in the various countries there, from Iran to Ethiopia. This is a wonderful, thought - provoking read.
