Loved it!
5 stars By Kaidee, Oct 26 2015
I picked up this book to read a little bit and see what it was like, then I quite literally couldn't put it down! Such an amazing story of the pursuing love of God and Bilquis Sheik's courage to follow Him, no matter the cost. I was encouraged, blessed and moved through reading this book. God is so good!

Powerful journey
4 stars By Manda, Mar 09 2015
Bilquis Sheikh's story follows her Muslim upbringings and her eventual decision to follow Christ. It is a story of overcoming fear because of the change in the Muslim community's attitudes towards her and the repercussions of becoming a Christian, and of growth as her inspiring faith develops, and of blessings as she discovers caring Christian fellowship from which she is able to draw strength.
