Good idea and praisable initiative. She also faces the wrath and determined opposition of Muhammad’s military chief Umar, a tyrant when it comes to women, and of Mohammad’s daughter Fatima and her husband Ali. It’s primarily all about women and their inner turmoil as they grow up. Does it turn us into different species? A’isha feels, weeps and breathes through these pages! It certainly takes a lot of chutzpah to write a historical novel from the viewpoint of one of Prophet Muhammad’s wives.

Lots of warring tribes and shifting alliances–which, again, could have been great, but everything just draghlj muddled to me.
