The author excellently pictures the strife torn area of Syria very well. The plight of women is very well described. The resilience of women in such dangerous areas, their struggle to survive etc has been depicted very nicely and is highly commendable.
A highly illuminating but heart rending life story of the author told with passion and sadness for the world to know and understand the pathetic lives women lead as Muslims and the regressive ideologies of males. A must read for every American today, in the election year, facing terrorism on their soil as they are caught in the verbal onslaught of vote bank politicians and paid media propaganda calling all those wanting a safe America and suggesting drastic measures for same as racists. It is an eye opener also for all those in that country who feel confused about Islam and not knowing what to do and whom to vote and how to protect themselves for a bright future.
A candid account of everyday misogyny in Islamic countries. A must read! Every regressive apologist of Islam in the west, from Mehdi Hassan, Glenn Greenwald to Reza Aslan should be given a copy as a birthday present.
