What a book !!
If you are a Muslims who thinks that talking about prophet in any way that's not sacred then this book is not for you.
It is a novel, a fiction which is what the author explains at the beginning of the book with an apology if he offended Muslim in the process.

The chapters are:
1-Abdul Muttalib "The slave"
2-Bashira, The Hermit
3-Halima, The Wet nurse
4-Waraqah, The Believer
5-Barakah, The African Slave
6-Kattab, The Elder

13-Ali, The First Convert.
14-A Jewish Scribe

Thank you a lot for this post, knowing you and your blog has changed my thought a lot.
it's . I don't know if you have read any thing similar but this is my first time. It will give you a unique and beautiful look about their lives.
We can exchange notes after you read it :D
And you are welcome :)
I am so glad that I have been able to change even the bit of misinformation you have about Muslims.
Sadly, it goes both ways with almost all religions. So we need to look beyond that image the media like to portrait about Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims and atheist too so we all can thrive and have a great place to live in.
Thank you a lot for your kind words :)
one of the best books i have read recently :)
