Here’s a summary of a really great book about a bicultural marriage– a true love story: Fifteen years ago, Krista Bremer was a surfer from a secular middle-class family who dreamed of a comfortable American life of adventure, romance, and opportunity. Then, on a running trail in North Carolina, she met Ismail. Kind, sincere, and passionate, Ismail came from another world: one of eight children, he’d been raised in an impoverished fishing village in Libya. When Krista later realized she was carrying his child—and she and Ismail made the decision to become a family—she embarked on a journey she never could have imagined.
This is what people are saying about this lyrical memoir: “My Accidental Jihad is a bold piece of writing (and thinking) by an incredibly brave woman.” –Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
