A novel about a subject that can only be identified and realized in a Muslim society. The unspeakable misery and horrors that many Muslim women endure under the paternalistic laws and customs of this religion are almost inconceivable to our non-Muslim world. As still occurs, even in North America, women suffer under the men and families who control their lives - honor killings, FGM, forced marriage. In this story, Zeba will pay the ultimate penalty to protect her children and others. Although a work of fiction, it mirrors life for many thousands of Muslim women.
