    The Butterfly Mosque, journalist G. Willow Wilson's remarkable story of converting to Islam and falling in love with an Egyptian man in a volatile post-9/11 world, was praised as "an eye-opening look at a misunderstood and often polarizing faith" (Booklist) and "a tremendously heartfelt, healing crosscultural fusion" (Publishers Weekly).
