An unprecedented, sympathetic, and wide-ranging exploration of the mysterious world of Islamic women.

More than half a billion women live their lives peering out from behind veils. To the outside world, their lives are mysterious and misunderstood, and are often marked by hardship and suffering.

This groundbreaking work, written by Christian women intimately familiar with the world of Islam and Islamic women, looks at the real experience of Muslim women at every stage of life: as children, wives, mothers, sisters, and as religious adherents.

Each of the women contributing to this work, ranging from missionaries in Islamic countries to journalists and former Muslims, powerfully yet respectfully portray what it means to be a voice behind the veil.
