A tender struggle: story of a marriage
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.
"A bold piece of writing (and thinking) by an incredibly brave woman." —Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love
"Utterly absorbing . . . A beautiful book." —Cheryl Strayed, New York Times–bestselling author of Wild
