A well written book with sufficient background to make for a tale well told. Bibliography was detailed but where are the footnotes? As with Tariq Ramadan's "In the Steps of the Prophet", nowhere is the age of Aisha mentioned, which according to Hadith reported by Sahih Muslim, betrothal at age 6 and consummation at age 9.
