the understated beauty at the heart of 'wife of the heart'

photo by christoph grant

the woman at the core of this new book, 'wife
of the heart' is from a culture and country that
is heavily publicized and somewhat misunderstood
to a certain extent. Somalia, to me, i knew to be
different from other African nations for a couple
of reasons. One being that my mother worked in
the United Nations and knew a few people from
there and shared that knowledge with me. Another
reason was because I have family from there. In
some respects, i feel 'wife of the heart' is a
tribute to her beauty as well as the beauty of
all Somalian women. it may be an unorthodox
tribute because being outspoken in this way is
not seen that often in their society but i've
always felt that the best appreciation of
someone no matter in what sense is to say it loud
and proud. and hopefully this book will have
accomplished that for you.
