Baker & Taylor
A Muslim family experiences tragedy and growth under Islamic law when their father, Aziz Zeitoun, violently repudiates his wife, Nayla, then attempts to remarry her within Islamic regulations.

Blackwell North Amer
Nayla Zeitoun has just been told by her son that she has become a grandmother. In his excitement he lets out a small secret about the child, and she flies out of the house with a handful of salt to dispel the evil eye. Her daughters are astonished as she has never left the house before without a man of the family beside her. When Mr. Zeitoun hears that she has gone out, he is so angry that he repudiates her three times and so breaks the marriage. He regrets his action at once but according to Islamic law he can only remarry her if she marries and is divorced by someone else first. He persuades an unassuming neighbor to take her as his wife and then divorce her. He thinks he has taken care of things according to the laws of God and society, but events take an unexpected turn.
