Review Of The Torn Veil By Gulshen Esther For July Book Club Meeting
I was asked if I would take this book on for Readers’ Group, and I have to say that, although I agreed, I wasn’t wildly enthusiastic. How wrong can you be! It was what someone once dubbed one of my earliest books: a one-bath-book. You don’t notice that the water’s getting cold because you can’t stop reading ‘til you get to the end!
This was certainly a compelling read. And – amazingly – despite the author’s experience of miracles that don’t chime with the world as you and I know it, I found all unbelief (or should that be disbelief?) was suspended. If we, in the West, knew a tenth of the faith, love and trust that this young Muslim woman knew on her conversion to Christianity, we would be rich indeed.
