Along with her brother Eyad and her African-American friends, Hakim and Hanifa, she bikes the Indianapolis streets exploring the fault-lines between "Muslim" and "American." When her picture-perfect marriage goes sour, Khadra flees to Syria and learns how to pray again. On returning to America she works in an eastern state -- taking care to stay away from Indiana, where the murder of her friend Tayibaʹs sister by Klan violence years before still haunts her. But when her job sends her to cover a national Islamic conference in Indianapolis, sheʹs back on familiar ground: Attending a concert by her brotherʹs interfaith band The Clash of Civilizations, dodging questions from the "aunties" and "uncles," and running into the recently divorced Hakim everywhere. -- Publisher description."@en ;
