#FabulousVeilsNovel#Book Review

“I really enjoyed how the stories were retold, broken down in decades and going within each chapter from one character’s story to another. I am not 100% sure why the author decided to space the stories in 10 year periods over four + decades, but it was nevertheless interesting. I also like how the author stresses that the women in the stories, despite their background, all suffered tremendously, impressing upon the reading that no matter their social status, they felt suppressed by the traditions of their families and their society. Above all, I thought it was so interesting how Iman incorporated Egyptian words into the story, and I think that it was mostly during the episodes involving Fatma that it was more emphasised. I enjoyed looking at the back pages to understand the meanings!”
