Shumez (Sunshine) In The Storm Apr 20, 2009
Dr. Hassan brings to light just what was happeing in Iraq during the time Saddam Hussein was in power. Her strong Christian beliefs are very evident has she takes us through 17 years of her life in Iraq. The reason this book is so great is the fact that Dr. Hassan did not write this book from second hand information about the situation in Iraq. Her husband was in different positions of power within goverment and had some influence. This influence almost cost him is life, as you see when you read this book. In other words, Dr Hassan was not a poor uninformed American just visiting Iraq. She herself became a Medical Doctor and gained a great deal of respect amoung the Iraqie people. It is truly difficult to do justice to this book and to give the true respect that Dr. Hassan deserves for writing this book, in this short review. Please take time to read this wounderful true story. You will find out just how wondeful the Iraqie people really are. You will also gain an apprication for what we are doing over in Iraq even now.

Readers are reassured by stories that show us people are the same everywhere. We all want to live in peace and freedom. Hers is the story of an American woman who willingly lived in this country, even in dangerous times, and fell in love with its people.
