Reviews

"My Accidental Jihad is a bold piece of writing (and thinking) by an incredibly brave woman." --Elizabeth Gilbert, author of The Signature of All Things and Eat, Pray, Love

"Utterly absorbing . . . A beautiful book." --Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild

"Candid and rich." --Good Housekeeping

"Lucid, heartfelt and profoundly humane, My Accidental Jihad navigates the boundaries of religion and politics to arrive at the universal experience of love." --G. Willow Wilson, author of Alif the Unseen

"A beautiful account of [Bremer's] jihad, or struggle, to find peace within herself and within her marriage." --The Kansas City Star

"Readers of memoir will welcome this love story about patience and kindness and learning the importance of putting culture first." --Library Journal

"A moving, lyrical memoir . . . A sweet and rewarding journey of a book." --Kirkus Reviews

"Told with rare honesty, My Accidental Jihad is the story of Krista Bremer's lifelong quest for insight and understanding, a search that leads her out of the Pacific surf to journalism school in North Carolina and through the complex challenges and unexpected joys of a cross-cultural marriage and family. This book is a powerfully personal account of the courage and hard work necessary to open one's heart and keep it that way." --Maggie Shipstead, author of Seating Arrangements

"My Accidental Jihad is one of the most captivating and moving memoirs I've read in years. The story Krista Bremer tells--one of radical foreignness between a married couple--could be a metaphor for all committed relationships." --Haven Kimmel, author of A Girl Named Zippy
