Top customer reviews
Not only do we see Sunshine's successes, we see her failures. She marries an aristocratic Moroccan only to find her life is so restricted she plots a daring escape. We also see her strong moral character. When Omar, who is spying on her, slides into a deep pool and starts to drown, she saves him. She gives an Irish pastor a big bag of money she found hoping he will be able to find the owner.
The strongest feature of this book is that it gets the reader to ask: "Look at all that Sunshine achieved despite all her obstacles. Why can't I do the same? What is holding me back? I am an excuse maker or a doer?"
