Poignant story, though poorly written at times
on 21 November 2014
A truly harrowing tale. It was very insightful into the role of women in Yemeni culture and the day to day life in Yemen in the 1970s onwards. There were many parts of the book I liked: her descriptions of people and her relationships, especially of that with Yasmin. However I found the book badly written in places and there were areas where it lost my interest.
