Important Story
5 stars By Rebecca , Feb 19 2018
This is a story that needed to be told. I couldn't put the book down and it certainly tugs on the heart strings.  Rifqa's story has given me insight into another culture, and an appreciation of how good I've had it. I'll carry her story with me as I deal with those from Muslim backgrounds in my work.

Enlightening
4 stars By Jacqui, Dec 01 2017
This biography shines a light on and gives you awareness for how dangerous it is for a Muslim to convert to Christianity. More than that though, it shows you the power of God in reaching His precious children and leading and loving them. Rifqa's courage and faith through the whole story is incredible and strong. This is a challenging book to read.

Insightful and Inpirational
5 stars By Mrs Ed, Jan 04 2017
This book gave me a new insight into my limited knowledge of what it means to be born a Muslim into the Islamic faith. Rifqa had me eager to progress to the next chapter throughout the book as she described the complexities of her situation. I was inspired by Rifqa's persistence and unwavering faith despite the challenges she faced. Jesus is The Light of The World and this is Rifqa's story of how she came to know that truth. This could be a great read for a Christian of mature or long-term faith, yet also a great encouragement for those who are newer in their Christian Faith, or those who are uncertain about the power and presence of Jesus in their life. Highly Recommended! (Mid-teen to adult readers)

Excellent book - gripping. I could not put it down.
5 stars By Marian, Dec 04 2015
This book had me from the first page.  It gave an insight into the life of a Muslim girl and her family.  The change in the attitude of the family to her when she sustained an injury which blinded one of her eyes, her walk away from Islam into Christianity all very well told.  When she had to actually run from her family in fear of her life it was so gripping I could not put it down.  A great book, I can recommend it most highly.  You will not be disappointed.
