Paperbackpages. At the heart of the novel is the story of Foltsteps, a forty-seven-year-old biracial son of a White mother and Black father, and Sarah, a forty-nine-year-old White daughter of the racist South. It’s such a compelling story that I think handles controversial issues well.
I enjoyed how Kate, an outsider and non Muslims was more open to it than any of the Muslims. Refresh and try again. This is a great book with a strong plot that took me with her to the story where each one of the characters tries to understand this life in the best way.

I love that Umm Zakiyyah allowed us glimpses of all the families, which really helped us to imagine an established Muslim society and how everything affected many families not just one. Footsteps focuses on Aminah and Sulayman’s parents and while I don’t like perfect characters, reading about Sarah and Ismael’s thoughts and feelings about polygyny was frustrating at times.
