Author of Inshallah: ‘by turns gripping, provoking and vividly sensory’ Tiffany Atkinson
Amanda ran from an abusive marriage in Saudi Arabia with her four sons and infant daughter, Aisha. She found sanctuary at Blossom House – in the loving embrace of a community of women. But always at the back of her mind was the fear that Muhammed would come for his children.
Ash has grown-up feeling lost and out of place, left to her own devices by her damaged mother, abandoned to the lure of paint and canvas. She has few friends until she comes upon a group of Islamic women who promise empowerment and a mission in life – which has to be better than sacrificing herself to the twin goddesses of anorexia and social acceptance.
One woman’s dream is the other’s nightmare.
Praise for Inshallah:
‘A thoroughly readable novel, set against the seeping damp of Wales and the white heat of Arabia"
New Welsh Review
"A powerful and beautifully written story…grippingly claustrophobic" Kit Habianic, author of Until Our Blood is Dry
