Entertaining fictional perspective on the American immigrant experience from a Muslim woman’s perspective.  Rooted in a small town reminiscent of the South in the 1960s, this intriguing tale of a Muslim woman coming of age in apartheid-South Africa and experiencing a midlife crisis in the United States weaves a variety of topics, including HIV/AIDS, together in an entertaining way.

Fascinating mix of science, history, social commentary, and religion. A page-turner.
