    Insightful!

    I received this book through NetGalley and its publisher, Spiegel & Grau, and sure am glad I did. From the first page, it grabs your attention. If I could give partial points, this book would actually be 4.5 stars. It is a memoir about Daisy Khan’s life (from birth to current times). It brings insight into her childhood in Kashmir and her experience with Islamic religion with an exposure to a Christian education, family, relationships, and career. It provides some history of Pakistan, Kashmir and Ayatollah Khomeini’s revolution. I found the book very interesting and loved learning more about Muslims, the Quran and the five pillars of the Muslim faith. Daisy describes her family and religion: “My entire family were devout Muslims. The adults generally prayed five times a day…” Daisy’s parents sound amazing: “My parents placed great value on education, even while most Kashmiris did not.” It was helpful to understand Daisy’s perspective on how Americans reacted to Muslims especially after 9/11. The book also shares details about the organizations Daisy and her husband spearheaded. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it. It gave me more respect and understanding of Muslims which I believe is one of the goals of the book -- educating on American Muslims and misunderstandings of the Islamic religion: “We fear what we do not understand. It is our place to not judge but to learn and understand.” Well said, Daisy.
