I highly suggest this book to all readers. To je sve svejedno. It’s set at the beginning of the of Islam, while it is a story of the beginnings of Islam it is more a story of A’ish and her life.

The Jewel of Medina is indeed a page turner, that wisps the reader into the beginning years of the foundation and surfacing knmiga Islam and into the lives of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad and his wives.

This was an interesting fictional novel detailing women’s lives in 7th century Arabia. Kako biste vi sebe zapravo okarakterisali?
