A Western woman finds love and struggle with her Libyan husband in a memoir of marriage across a cultural divide: "A sweet and rewarding journey of a book" (Kirkus Reviews).
Fifteen years ago, Krista Bremer, a California-bred feminist, surfer, and aspiring journalist, met and fell in love with a man from a very different world. Ismail Suayah was sincere, passionate, kind, and one of eight siblings born in an impoverished fishing village in Libya. Raised a Muslim, Ismail's faith informed his life.
When Krista and Ismail made the decision to become a family, she embarked on a journey she never could have imagined: a quest for spiritual and intellectual growth that would open her mind and, more important, her heart.
