    1. The books deserves of a 1.5 than a 1 star, but it definitely wasn t a 2 star so I rounded down Before I continue, I should add that I was born and raised in the U.S and have a Muslim Indian background I relate to Americans and American culture, but I have been exposed to and understand many aspects of Indian and Pakistani culture I also coincidentally read this book while on a family trip to India, during a flight from Hyderabad to Delhi and a drive from Delhi to Agra On to the review I though [...]

    2. I don t read romances Just don t So why am I reviewing this Because the title and the jacket blurb sounded interesting enough to give it a go Result I am reminded why I don t read romances.The author, Cheryl Howard Crew, is married to Ron Howard I m guessing he was at lunch with some agent or editor and said, Hey, would you take a look at something my wife wrote Next thing you know, published I doubt it would have gotten off the slush pile, otherwise Because, it s pretty much a checklist story e [...]

    3. Meh Convoluted Confusing Oddly slow and rushed at the same time The brutality is harsh but probably accurate Biggest failing of the book, in my mind, is that a rape victim doesn t fall into bed with anyone just a few weeks after two extremely traumatizing rapeseven if this is fiction.

    4. In the Face of Jinn is the story of two sisters who go to India in order to buy silk for their business This is a story about danger and the very special bond between sisters It is an interesting premise for the book and I really liked the out of the ordinary setting of Asia.The setting of the book was really interesting and definitely helped to keep me engaged in the book You all know how much I love armchair traveling, right I really liked how Crew captured the surroundings in Pakistan, Afghan [...]

    5. Good read, but story was a tad difficult to follow at times during the climactic chapters Once I was able to follow what the author was wanting me to, then I enjoyed it Book brings to life another side of the world, plays up a heroine who will stop at nothing to find her sister Filled with tragedy and much loss to the main character, it s an empowering story for many and provides a good understanding at the power of love.

    6. It was an interesting book although it had some difficult things to read As in The Kite Runner, it made me appreciate the liberties we have as women in the U.S I finished it last night and it is still haunting me, so whether I liked it or not it tells me that it has caused me to pause and think, so I have to give it 4 stars.

    7. Written by director Ron Howard s wife Cheryl The story was excellently told, however, the tragedy of life in Afganistan and India especially for women was quite disturbing There is far too much rape and beating going on.

    8. This is a traumatic book which we all need to read If you sometimes wonder about the difference between us and them read this book Cheryl Crew has done a brilliant job of going into this scary part of the world to us and we should all respect that and ponder it.

    9. I plucked this book off the bargain table at BN and was surprised at how the storyline drew me in The book is set in Western and Southern Asia, and it s filled with historical and cultural factoids An interesting read with some violence and a touch of romance.
