One of my favourite discoveries is an autobiography of a Swedish writer Anna Sundberg, titled “The Terrorist’s Wife”. It was both exciting and terrifying at the same time.
It is a journey throughout 16 years since the first time Anna fell in love and got married with a muslim and how she started to realise what she had bound up with. For some period she lived in Germany, then in a Georgian village, near Chechen border, and afterwards in Syria as well. She got married twice, gave birth to four children, saw how her sons were taught to handle a gun, shared her husband with another woman etc.
Basically she ended up in a Syrian prison which made her communicate with Swedish embassy and after quite a struggle she was brought back to Sweden.
It was that kind of a book which gives you a lot to think about for a long time – an eye-opener that not everything is as black and white as it seems. You do not want to put the book down on a cupboard because you just have to go to work tomorrow. Really interesting and gripping story – Cloudy’s approval! 🔖
