Felt like I travelled to Bagdad

I haven’t travelled anywhere near as much as I would like to. So, I travel through the books that I read. I truly felt like I was in Baghdad when I was between the pages of this book. I love when an author can achieve that!

I love strong female lead characters and here I was presented with three of them. Each different in their own way, but all exemplified a resilience that is admirable. Huda, Rania and Ally are characters I would love to know in real life and I was definitely rooting for them throughout the book.

I would recommend this book to those like me who long to travel and experience other cultures but aren’t able to for one reason or another. Also for those who love to get lost in the pages of a book.

This book has a bit of everything .. atmosphere, suspense, friendships and triumphs. It was a delight to read and the three characters will stick with me.
