    Review quote
    ""The Butterfly Mosque" is replete with insights into faith, family, cross-cultural courtship and the inevitable 'clash of cultures, ' making it an absorbing read. . . . Wilson's memoir offers the reader valuable insights into the Islamic faith. . . . A remarkable journey, one that illuminates the humanity in us all."--"The Seattle Times" "Captivating . . .

Wilson has the objective sensitivity to understand the attitudes and arguments facing her; she's multicultural, eloquent and humbly persuasive. And even better, she knows how to tell a,
