Summary
"Born in the desert city of Khartoum, Leila understands from early on that she is not part of normal Sudanese society. At school, she and best friend Amal are called 'daughters of sin'. But growing up under the strict discipline of nannies, Leila has no answer to the question 'Who am I?' Her pretty sister Zulima is married off to a much older man while, at the age of ten, Leila and Amal undergo female circumcision. Leila goes on to marry, have four children, and divorce - and even grown up she continues to know the stigma of being abandoned. Yet her spirit remains strong, and despite her struggle she speaks of the beauty and joy of life, and of her love for her children and friends."-- Back cover
