“Mom, I havesomething I need to tell you…”

They didn’t talk. Notfor ten years. Not about faithanyway. Instead, a mother and daughtertiptoed with pain around the deepest gulf in their lives – the daughter’schoice to leave the church, convert to Islam and become a practicingMuslim. Undivided is a real-time story of healing and understanding withalternating narratives from each as they struggle to learn how to love eachother in a whole new way.

Although this is certainly a book for mothers and daughtersstruggling with interfaith tensions , it is equally meaningful for mothers anddaughters who feel divided by tensions in general. An important work for parentswhose adult children have left the family’s belief system, it will help thosesame children as they wrestle to better understand their parents.

Undivided offers an up close and personal look at the life of an Islamicconvert—a young American woman—at a time when attitudes are mixed about Muslims(and Muslim women in particular), but interest in such women is high. Foranyone troubled by the broader tensions between Islam and the West, thispersonal story distills this friction into the context of a family relationship—ajourney all the more fascinating.

Undivided is a tremendously important book for our time. Will Patricia be able to fully trust in theChrist who “holds all things together?” Will Alana find new hope or new understanding as the conversation getsdeeper between them? And can they answerthe question that both want desperately to experience, which is “Can we makeour torn family whole again?”
