From our 2015 #80DayRead Summer Reading Club traveler Mallee: An often hilarious look into the life and times of an Egyptian family in the 50s.

I entered the hearts and minds and saw through the eyes of each family member and it was not as I might have imagined or wanted it to be....clear view of Muslim religion and culture from within a family....universal ways of being in the world: men's sexual desires, women desiring children and stability, young men wanting a cause to fight for, power seeking and war making....

I read this book several years ago, but it still sticks in my head. The author does an exceptional job of getting into the head of the characters, especially the wife/mother. As a North American Christian woman, I often find it difficult to understand how Muslim women tolerate the restrictions put upon them in some countries. I found this book opened my eyes about the thought processes that some of these women have in their day to day lives.
