In addition to the highly disturbing and gut wrenching issues of fgm , Ms. Carlton explores other important matters -- religious practices and prejudice , betrayal, abandonment , universal conscription--interweaving a group of brilliantly written and provocative themes throughout the book with great style and skill .
