"A British Muslim Memoir"

by Lauren Booth,
Published by Kube.




Description :

'Finding Peace in the Holy Land' is a spiritual adventure story which begins in the quiet London suburb of Hampstead in the 1970s. Lauren’s father is a famous actor and political militant. Penniless and unable to pay the rent, he tells her that changing the world is the reason for living.


After her early faith is shattered by a mysterious fire, Lauren paddles the shallows of celebrity life, where her political opinions pit her against the views of her brother-in-law, who just happens to be Prime Minister Tony Blair. This rare and relevant memoir is told with brisk honesty and sharp humour. It is a dramatic life story sweeping from the suburbs of North London to the olive groves of the Holy Land, from handball with Hamas to breaking a deadly siege by land and by sea.


It tracks the singular journey of a one-time party girl and part-time Christian to the quiet, teetotal life of a devout believer in the teachings of the Arabian Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.



Reviews :


"A captivating modern pilgrimage. Booth’s road to Mecca offers a precious and unique insight into the modern Islamic reality." — Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, scholar, writer & academic, Cambridge.


"I would highly recommend (this book) for anyone wishing to learn about one of most fascinating Muslim personalities of our time." — Imam Zaid Shakir, American scholar, co-founder Zaytuna College.


"Finding Peace in the Holy Land’ is a profound, exciting and often amusing journey trying to make sense of Booth's own life and her search for identity.The path she uses to get there should inspire us to be equally daring and to think outside the proverbial box. Booth’s memoir is as whimsical as it is deep, sincere and thoughtful. A beautiful book." — Dr. Ramzy Baroud journalist, author of The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story.


"Beautifully written, a candid and engaging quest for truth. Above all, a message of hope." — Farooq Murad, Director General of Islamic Foundation.


"As she challenges injustice and oppression, Booth finds hope, meaning, and salvation in the the cauldron of the Middle East. An engaging, intelligent and highly relevant memoir." — CJ Werleman, author of Koran Curious.
