     The novel, written by Leila Aboulela, is about an upper-class Sudanese woman who has to     flee to London with her mother and brother when the coup of 1985 led to ...her father’s execution. The novel follows her life as she transitions from a Westernized teen in Sudan, to a devout Muslim woman working as a maid in London. The book, examining issues of class, religion, culture and gender through one woman's personal journey, is available to check out at the Library
