My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer

"Utterly absorbing . . . A beautiful book." -Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild

"A bold piece of writing (and thinking) by an incredibly brave woman." -Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

Fifteen years ago, Krista Bremer was a surfer and an aspiring journalist who dreamed of a comfortable American life of adventure, romance, and opportunity. Then, on a running trail in North Carolina, she met Ismail, sincere, passionate, kind, yet from a very different world. Raised a Muslim--one of eight siblings born in an impoverished fishing village in Libya--his faith informed his life. When she and Ismail made the decision to become a family, Krista embarked on a journey she never could have imagined, an accidental jihad: a quest for spiritual and intellectual growth that would open her mind, and more important, her heart.

"A moving, lyrical memoir . . . A sweet and rewarding journey of a book." -Kirkus Reviews

"Readers of memoir will welcome this love story about patience and kindness and learning the importance of putting culture first." -Library Journal

"Lucid, heartfelt, and profoundly humane, My Accidental Jihad navigates the boundaries of religion and politics to arrive at the universal experience of love." -G. Willow Wilson, author of Alif the Unseen

"Bremer's particular story strikingly highlights the (usually more mundane) cultural clashes and compromises inherent to every marriage or long-term relationship." -Publishers Weekly
