Like "Brick Lane" and "The Kite Runner," Camilla Gibb[s widely
praised new novel is a poignant and intensely atmospheric look
beyond the stereotypes of Islam. After her hippie British parents
are murdered, Lilly is raised at a Sufi shrine in Morocco. As a
young woman she goes on pilgrimage to Harar, Ethiopia, where she
teaches Qur[an to children and falls in love with an idealistic
doctor. But even swathed in a traditional headscarf, Lilly can[t
escape being marked as a foreigner. Forced to flee Ethiopia for
England, she must once again confront the riddle of who she is and
where she belongs.
