AND...I AM SO DARN GLAD THAT I DID!
Nadirah Angail is an extremely talented author! This book was exquisitely crafted...The characterizations were strong and realistic (each character had good and not-so-good traits...making them seem like actual human beings), the story was told in a concise manner (no flowery, non-essential minutiae in this read...every page cracked with details vital to story), and Ms. Angail seems to have the ability to pace her writing in a manner that totally engages the reader in the outcome of each subplot as it unfolds. This tale was about life--the good, the bad, and the sometimes ugly--but every page rang with AUTHENTICITY!
Only one complaint: Domestic violence issue needed to be resolved before the book ended...Unfair to leave your readers hanging in a nebulous cloud regarding this situation! We are concerned and invested in Kalimah's well being!
Maryam get her dream job and supposedly dream husband, until she learns that he cheated on her with an unexpected person. I'm not sure what, if anything, Maryam learned along the way - probably something about forgiveness.
Jaime learns the value of her husband, in the face of her terrible behaviour. She also learns to stand up for herself against her parents and to get a life. In the process she badly mistreats her friends - it may show that people who are too suppressed go too far when they taste freedom.
Your perfect self and the perfect life will never happen.
Alia changes for a man (maybe it's for the better, but she loses some of herself in the process). He notices her change and misses the old Alia, which is irksome since she changes for him. What a fine line to draw, to change just-enough for the one you love but not too much. Meh.
Malika is the one looking for a husband but in the end she finds herself and learns that she is okay alone.
The study of characters was deep since they all change so much over the course of the book. However, the time jumps were a bit jarring.
Quotable: "Asking a Muslim girl if she thinks about marriage is like asking a fat kid if he thinks about cake".
