"Mom, I have something I need to tell you…"
They didnt talk. Not for ten years. Not about faith anyway. Instead, a mother and daughter tiptoed with pain around the deepest gulf in their lives the daughters choice to leave the church, convert to Islam and become a practicing Muslim. Undivided is a real-time story of healing and understanding with alternating narratives from each as they struggle to learn how to love each other in a whole new way.
Although this is certainly a book for mothers and daughters struggling with interfaith tensions , it is equally meaningful for mothers and daughters who feel divided by tensions in general. An important work for parents whose adult children have left the familys belief system, it will help those same children as they wrestle to better understand their parents.
Undivided offers an up close and personal look at the life of an Islamic converta young American womanat a time when attitudes are mixed about Muslims (and Muslim women in particular), but interest in such women is high. For anyone troubled by the broader tensions between Islam and the West, this personal story distills this friction into the context of a family relationshipa journey all the more fascinating.
Undivided is a tremendously important book for our time. Will Patricia be able to fully trust in the Christ who "holds all things together?" Will Alana find new hope or new understanding as the conversation gets deeper between them? And can they answer the question that both want desperately to experience, which is "Can we make our torn family whole again?"
