I know you are really curious now, so all I will say is that a lot of the book covers an adult topic. I know a lot of women may take a certain stance that is covered in this book, but I feel that the author did a wonderful job conveying all the characters and their mind set.

Footsteps focuses on Aminah and Sulayman’s parents and while I don’t like perfect characters, reading about Sarah zakiyywh Ismael’s thoughts and feelings about polygyny was frustrating at times.

Footsteps by Umm Zakiyyah
It was a compelling read, although at times I felt like I was being hit over the head with a ‘women are jealous by nature, men are polygamous by nature’ stick. I enjoyed how Kate, an outsider and non Muslims was more open to it than any of the Muslims. Just from reading the back of Zakjyyah, I knew the topic of polygyny was going to be part of the book.
