It is difficult to assess a book of this nature as it involves various issues like culture and belief with which one may not be familiar with. But this book is honest, and Krista Bremer has with all sincerity chosen to discuss her life and relationship as she embarked on a journey of unexpected struggle to open her heart and grow beyond herself, and explore a world which lies beyond her comfort zone. Krista Bremer is an American author and the associate publisher of The Sun magazine. She is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer's Award, and a North Carolina Arts Council fellowship. In short, Bremer is no ordinary American. My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer is her love story of being married to Ismail, a Muslim who was born in Libya. It is beautifully written, and the story is much more than a cross-cultural marriage. In it she writes of her teething troubles, hopes, joy and how her marriage has changed her world and her mindset. My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer is an eye-opening memoir that is insightful and informative. It is about love and marriage. Bremer sensitively handles the cross-cultural issues, and paints a portrait that will open the eyes of many to the world around us.

I listened to the audiobook version during a car ride and found it very entertaining and intriguing. I recommend this story to anyone interested in new perspectives, humor and observing the contrast of different cultures through a love story. It is a lovely written memoir, which reminds some of Joan Didion's narrative style.
