I just finished this book and have to say I absolutely loved it. It was a nice change to hear the view of a Western trained Muslim doctor experiencing a society so different from hers.
At times it was down right maddening to read about certain things, like the hate that is willingly taught to children and at others it touched my heart and soul. Reading about Dr. Ahmed's trip to Mecca was like being there with her. It made me smile to listen to her tell her story of finally finding her place in her faith.
The Q&A after the story was full of interesting information. It was nice to hear that things are changing for the women of Saudi Arabia.
The narrator was awesome and normally I don't care for female narrators but Ms. Barber surely brought the story to life.
