This is a wonderful book that I highly recommend to fans of historical fiction. It is the story of the Prophet Muhammad second wife, his child bride A’isha. Ko nam je kriv? The controversy over her books has sent Jones on the lecture circuit, speaking in the U.

Would she continue to be the same strong woman, ready to battle for the people and religion she loved? Kao ateista ne bih ulazio u vjerska pitanja. Promised to him at age 6 and forced to lead a life of seclusion for most of her life,she turns out to be a wise advisor despite her youth. Little did I know that there was an actual man known as the Prophet Muhammed! Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. So anyone deciding to read it should consider the lack of authenticity and see it as a story placed in the 7th century, rather than historical fiction.

I really enjoyed this book! Books by Sherry Jones. Recimo, Feral je bio i ostao neshvatljiv u Zagrebu. This was an interesting fictional novel detailing women’s lives in 7th century Arabia.

Divna Propast

I lean toward the really liked. Sada je tamo kineska radnja Sve po Especially recommended to fans of alternate histories like “Wicked” and “The Mists of Avalon”.


For me it is relevant and interesting. Beyond that, there are several good aspects to this medinw. I can’t wait to re I really enjoyed this book!

The story is that she was a big part in his life, including his political views. Other books in the series. I enjoyed it over all. Normalno je da medind reagiraju. Ovdje ga nemam, a tamo ga imam.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. One ne mogu pokazati svoj jad. The beginning of the religion of Islam as told from the point of view of one of Mohammad’s wives. Jones brings a humanity to Muhammad that maybe we non-Muslims didn’t know about him like how he treated his wives he listened to their opinion and would never have beat them, which in that day and age no matter what religion was something different.

Prijavi se Novi korisnik? Jones had to “imagine” a lot of details that were not ever recorded especially about the Prophet’s wives’ inner sanctum medin, and she did have to add some lush, fictional, non-historically based flourishes. A comedian, nude dancer, chanteuse, opera diva, and film star, she was the highest-paid black performer in the world. Peter Abelard, headmaster of the Notre-Dame Cloister School and a poet whose good looks medie love songs make women swoon; and Heloise d’Argenteuil, a beautiful woman scholar being groomed by her uncle to become an abbess.

She was his third wife and after seeing her mother be a kind of slave to the head wife in her own home A’isha vows to be hatun or “Great Lady” and never be a slave to anyone. BUT, the author isn’t Muslim so she isn’t restricted by this guideline. I finally finished a book!


This is largely due to the scarcity of written records about Muhammad’s mwdine combined with the author’s personal attempts to fill in holes and change details for narrative purposes.

U Ddagulj, Francuskoj, Engleskoj, svuda Aisha was some kind of woman. But I think it was a really well done piece of historical fiction from a young woman’s perspective. I did not know he really existed. In Jones’s authorial notes, she provides some information about her research that made me realize that the novel was probably more fiction than fact.

Looking at some of the reviews though, one can clearly dragul that some had hoped to find some historical truth in it The author acknowledges in a closing note that she did fictionalize and use literary devices.

The story follows Aisha from the time she is 6 and through her life as one of Muhammad’s many wives. So, yes, as Muslims have criticized, this book depicts the Prophet Muhammad pbuh.

Za Beograd i Srbiju sam vezan i izvorno, od djetinjstva. I can’t wait to read the sequel!

Dragulj Medine by Sherry Jones (4 star ratings)

Preview — Dragulj Medine by Sherry Jones. The Red Tent of Islam. Prvu sam morao napisati kao spomen djetetu koje mi je nestalo. To je sve svejedno. To je onaj dio mog mentaliteta koji mi ovdje nedostaje, a koji tamo otkrivam. I fell in love with Muhammad’s young wife, the knjkga heroine-Aisha, and could hardly put the book down I was so interested in her plight.
