I have to say I am not very good at reviewing books. Most of the time, I like books or I don’t. But when it comes to say why, it’s another reality. But I will try my best and for sure God will give me the right words to express my ideas.

I related to this book a lot and it helped me to get out of the guilty place I put myself in, as a soon-to-be-divorced woman.
Fatima is a young woman, who finds herself alone and lost, after her divorce. She is struggling to find her place in her life, in her family and in the world. She is struggling as a woman, as a Muslim and as a simple human being.
We follow her on her journey, between her failures, her hopes, her weaknesses, her trust for a man who does not deserve her, her friendships and we get to see that what counts before everything else, is really the love for the Creator. It’s only through His love that we can live fully and recreate ourselves, understand who we are and why we are here.
She will meet people who will teach her humanity and love, who will hold her hand and let her know she is worth it. She will rediscover the bonds that link her to her family and then accept the limits of others, the importance of forgiveness.
So I would say what I like most about this book, it’s the hope I found in it, the power we have in our hands to start again, to change and to create something better, to rediscover what is important in our lives and to trust God’s plan.
I have to thank God for giving me the chance to cross Zarina’s path a couple of years ago, when I was searching for inspiration on the web. Since then, we have shared many thoughts, we have discussed many topics and we have exchanged on many subjects, and we will continue. Because learning from others give us an open-mind and an open-mind is a key for peace.
