An excellent read I stumbled on, when buying time in the library while waiting to use one of the computers. Very inspiring to me. She is my new favorite author.

This is one of my favorite books ever. I was truly inspired by it. I couldn't put it down. Every page was completely riveting. I'd recommend it to absolutely anyone. Who wouldn't enjoy this book?
If you're interested in Islam, Egypt, or just want to hear a good true story, this is definitely something you need to pick up and open.

An engaging, insightful and moving book about a very human experience. Many people can relate to the sentiments and events in Wilson's life, I think, or if not can benefit from the open and straight-forward way she explains how and why things happen. It will certainly challenge any stereotype people have of converts to Islam, of the Middle East, of Islam and its followers and of what it means to "belong" to a country or culture. Truly, it is a story of many migrations: of the body, of the mind and of the heart.
