    PDF/EBOOK (The Cry of the Dove) I desperately wanted to like this book There were parts of it that were beautifully written My heart wrenched for Salma the main character of this piece Still it took me a good two or three reads of the first few chapters to even determine what was going on and in what time period which was aggravating The story also had a tendency to move at an extraordinarily slow pace leading to an outcome which was plainly obvious from the ver

characters The Cry of the Dove read & download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ú Fadia Faqir Fadia Faqir Ú 7 characters In her village of Hima in the Levant Salma a young goat herd has violated the code of her Bedouin tribe by becoming pregnant before marriage To restore their honour the villagers set out to kill her Now a runaway from the men of her tribe Salma's days playing the pipe for her goats and swimming in the spring are over She is placed in prison for her own protection and to the sound of her deafening screams her newborn baby is taken away After several years when it seems the men have given up on their chase she. I had a hard time rating this book I couldn t put it down reading well into the night which is unusual for me But it also makes me suspicious of a book when I can t put it down Am I being sucked into some emotional manipulation I m only rarely a reader for the story the narration but this one pulled me in I would like to read some serious criticism not just opinions here probably because I m too lazy to think it through Actually if I were reading it with others I might be able to tease out the things I felt uncomfortable about At times I did step back from the story and recognized that the language was beautiful but that was secondary to the story I guess that is what makes a good book to some who prefer the story line I tend to trust a book I read for languageThis is a story about a young woman who shames her family by becoming pregnant outside of marriage Her homeland is not said but since the author is of Jordanian roots I would guess that it s Jordan She s smuggled out of the country by Christian nuns because her brother is tasked to honour kill her by putting a bullet between her eyes She escapes her homeland and lives her adult years in Exeter in southern England where she both adapts to her new home and remains outside the culture which rejects immigrants It s a hard place to be but she has friends work a life and eventually finds love But she cannot forget the child that she bore names her tells stories about her imaginary life and sews her exuisite clothesI know that this is part of the Bedouin culture honour killing but I couldn t help but feel as though despite the author s origins that this was one of those books aimed at Westerners That it was meant to show the reader how backward the culture is I believe wouldn t anyone that murder no matter the reason is awful and that honour killing is horrendous To kill someone for embarrassing the family puts the family the tribe before the individual unimaginable to us but which I think is very much part of the Bedouin tribal way I believe that those who are honour killed are either women who have loved someone outside of the tribal rules and homosexual men It points to a patriarchal society with absolute rules about moralityAs I write this I m arguing with myself I feel a bit manipulated by the story which is well told but at the same time I think that the author shows a young girl mired in her culture not thinking about the big picture of her life within her community and the conseuences of thinkingfeeling for herself As she steps outside her culture living in Exeter she matures but at the same time cannot leave her roots behind or her child I appreciate this book for really talking about that difficulty that we are where we were born even when we need to leave it By the way I also left my home as a young woman when I became pregnant Though my familyculture did not demand the conseuences that these women face I was still an embarrassment to my parents With time my culture has changed and though the preference is not for children to be born outside of marriage it is not as unacceptable as it was then

Disappointing I wanted to like it I tried to like it I certainly felt empathy and sympathy for the female protagonist she was poorly treated both by her own family and by others However she also brought a great deal of her own misery on herself and she encountered the kindness of angels in disguise The book jumps around a lot from various places in the past to various places in the recent present the language is unnecessarily crude and the plot is predictable I only finished it in hopes it would get better it didn t Too bad it had promise Previous Went to Barnes Nobles last night kind of like letting a gambler go to a casino or an alcoholic go to a bar I was only going to buy Animal Vegetable Miracle since I had to return the library s copy and I decided I wanted one for my own They were sold out of course My 15% off coupon was burning a hole in my pocket however so I got this book instead It s about a Bedouin girl who falls from grace and comes to live in England I should be finishing Busman s Honeymoon I just had to peak inside It looks really good With all the conflict in the Middle East and the oppression of women there I have a great interest in them their lives how they are treated what they think how they endure and then if they emigrate how they cope with Western culture It looks like a good book to shed light on all those areas

I found this book while browsing at the library I took it home because I enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns which ended similarly but in a majestic satisfying wayAlso enough with the flowery descriptions already This book would have been a short story without all the turuoise encased in silver blah blah blah
