    Be prepared to leave the world as you know it, travel back in recent time, and experience life in Saudi Arabia, a Muslim state that had just undergone major changes within its borders Religion and its customs are harsh, particularly for females, the punishment seems evenharsh for failing to honor millennia old beliefs When a gutsy Muslim woman falls in love w

    Inshallah God Willing was originally written in 1978 It is a sweet love story in almost impossible circumstances Jinniya is a traditionally raised Saudi girl, who falls in love with an Englishman named Mark This story left me feeling very conflicted There is a major part of me that sympathizes with Jinniya s father I too am devoted to my religion and I really wan

    Parts of this I really liked I found the cultural things really interesting and how people related to each other this took place in the 70s, right before Saudi Arabia and the Middle East started changing Really interesting view of the culture And she really made the 70s real, I could see Mark s feathered hair and that horrid furniture But there was also a trashy Harl

    Reviewed by our very own guest author reviewer, Cassandra P Lewis I was pretty sure that I was going to love this book as soon as I saw it I am and have always been drawn to anything that whisks me off to foreign shores, I am intrigued by the Middle East and the different way of life and on top of that, I love taboo love stories Inshallah is the story of Jinniya, a young Sau

    A very tasteful and tender read about love in a foreign culture which is alien to many of us It made me realise how we take freedom of thought and expression for granted Lovely words and a lovely story, quite inspiring.
