But ltiimo that, he has done fairly well in painting the context and environment upon which Islam was born.
If you want to know more about Islam, I do not recommend this book. The third part was rather daunting, having to read about Muhammad’s struggles with hostility and persecution and fighting his way. This book did the trick for me on the life of Muhammad.

I call myself Queen of the Nile, but the last time I looked there isn’t a crown under my pillow. As the author says “I didn’t write this book to make Muhammad more holy. Highly recommended for those who would like to know the prophet and his family up close and personal.
It is no wonder that we have such a diversity among Muslims. Novelist OK as historical fiction, not so good as fiction. As some had said, I also felt some resentment in the words written by the author.
