"Book On It"

“Where is your bookmark?”

My bookmark is in the novel, “The Almond” by Nedjma. Badra leaves an arranged marriage that has depleted her soul. She flees her place of birth to her Aunt Selma’s home to finally speak on her sexual experiences. As a Muslim woman, Badra also rediscovers her being and desire. Each page widened my eyes. This is going to be a read!

Update: After having finished this novel, there are scenes of rape towards the end of the book.
