Polly Brown and her husband Ralph lived, worked, and raised their children in Pakistan for 35 years. During that time she forged deep friendships with Muslim, Christian and Hindu women who became sisters to her. In this book she tells their stories.
"What a wonderful book! Pauline Brown invites us into her home and the homes of her Pakistani friends - "sisters" - and as we become familiar with their lives and culture and customs, we also get a glimpse into their hearts. Pauline opens her heart through the stories of individual women, from many walks of life and faith, who first became friends and then, over time, true sisters of the heart. She relates how these women taught and touched her heart and life even as she shared with them her life - and the light and life and love of Jesus. These stories leave an indelible impression of her dear "sisters," each with individual plots and some with uncertain conclusions, but all who have impacted the author and now the reader. This book does not stop with these stories. One is left with the challenge to look around, to step out of ones comfort zone, and to ask the question: "Who is my sister?"
