Mehded Sinclair is a professional story teller with 25 years of experience. Her career as a touring and teaching artist began with Vermont Council. She lived in Turkey for 10 years teaching language and storytelling and now resides in Amman, Jordan. Mehded is the author of two picture books Miraculous Happenings in the year of the Elephant and A Trust of Treasures (both published by Kube Publishing).
"The author writes the novel in the form of a journal with Nur directly addressing her diary at the beginning of each chapter, which she calls "Buraq," in the second-person. At times her devotion add to the strength of the novel, for she makes a strong role model for young readers who may grow spiritually by getting to know this 'ideal Muslim' figure close to their age. Nur's piety also makes sense on a literary level; by creating a character as devout as Nur, the author was able to focus on the grieving process itself without external negative distractions such as tensions between family members."
