I could not put it down…I was fascinated not only by the plot of the novel, but especially by the brilliance of the writing itself. As a life-long, professional writer and editor, I can say that I have never encountered Umm Zakiyyah’s equal in portraying the nuances of encounters between persons at all levels from the most superficial to the most profound. She is a clear example of a person who has natural talent. A person can be trained to write well, but no amount of training can bring a person without superb, natural talent to captivate the reader as she does and exert a permanent intellectual and emotional impact.

Umm Zakiyyah’s deft representation of reality in this fictitious novel is astounding

“…a refreshing exploration of the unavoidable interaction between Muslims and Christians. The novel belongs to…a genre worthy of scholarly study.”
