Why are increasing numbers of Western women converting to Islam? The author tells the true-life stories of women who have become Muslims, exploring the reasons for their decisions and illustrating the problems that they face. She examines the particular issues confronting women who marry Muslims and addresses the long-term implications of conversion. In these ways the book prepares parents and church leaders to guide women who are contemplating conversion or marriage with Muslim men.
