Shadows of the Pomagranite Tree by Tariq Ali
This was a story of one family's fight to keep their religion and not have to convert to become Christians. They wanted the right to practice their Muslim religion. Umar the father is very rich and will not convert nor will his two daughters or his two sons, they want to be able to practice freely and openly and not fear death. The older son leaves to form an army to fight the Jihad. This book told a story about how one religion wants to be the only religion and would try to accomplish it anyway they could. The author had a great storyline and wonderfully realistic characters. I plan on reading more of this author soon.
