In the Face of Jinn
By

Rating
Two American sisters, Christine and Elizabeth Shepherd, are on a silk-buying trip in India for their business in California. After Elizabeth mysteriously disappears, Christine is compelled to challenge the ineffectual U.S. and Indian bureaucracies and venture alone, with various strangers as guides, to find her sister. Disguised in the traditional female garb of some Islamic cultures, Christine continues her search in Afghanistan and Pakistan. She navigates the mysterious tribes of the Pashtuns, has a dangerous encounter with the Taliban, and learns to fear the "Jinn," the devils that dominate the superstitions of the people she must understand in order to survive. Inspired by her own extensive travel throughout the region, Cheryl Howard Crew has written an unforgettable story with a strong determined heroine who rises powerfully from the pages of this novel.

It is a powerful story of one woman's journey toward self-realization as she recognizes for the first time the level of toughness and resilience she's capable of....Cheryl Howard Crew vividly sets forth a complex view of a very complex situation and we need that since we have a government that is looking at the situation in the simplest possible terms."- Mavis Nicholson Leno"With deft agility Cheryl Howard Crew journeys across female landscapes and cultures. She navigates with compassion and grace.
