Author(s): Nadia Jamal
Nadia Jamal takes us inside the lives of ordinary Muslim women from around Australia, showing how they find ways to stay true to their faith, and to themselves as well. These candid and moving stories reveal a side to Australian life that is little known and often misunderstood.
'A thoughtful, honest, and compelling window into a community so often assumed about, but rarely engaged with. I finished it in a single sitting.'
Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam
'Jamal's neutral, yet gently perceptive style allows the stories of her women to shine through, illuminating the myriad points of intersection with Islam in ordinary life. An absolutely fascinating and illuminating read.'
Annabel Crabb, ABC writer and broadcaster
