Epic Story - Rich Details.  Dec 21, 2007

C J Illinik wowed me with her historical knowledge. I almost felt like I was on horseback with Najila and company, or sitting in the lush gardens, or strolling through the busy streets of Constantinople.

The tale Najila is a story narrated omnisciently as Najila loses her mother at age four and beyond as Najila, at age sixty-nine, chooses to surprise the reader with a life change. Several storylines wind and weave covering land, war, politics, horses and faiths. History buffs should find the descriptions intriguinging. I can't imagine the amount of research Illinik invested in the story of Najila.

I did find it difficult to embrace the characters due to the time span. Those who devour character-driven fiction may feel the same frustration.
Life for women in India--up close and personal  Sep 17, 2007
Najila is the saga of a young Persian princess with a Christian father and a Muslim mother. This story chronicles her life from her birth to her death many years later.

Growing up with just her father as a parent (her mother died when she was four), she is torn between her father's Christian faith and the Muslim teachings of her maternal grandmother. Her life forever changes when her father, who insisted that they relocate from Baghdad to Constantinople, dies on the journey. Left to take charge of her inheritance, including her father's sprawling villa, she faces many dangers, new cultures and decisions. She rises above the expectations of those around her and becomes a success. During all this time, God continues to put people in her life who shares the truth of the Gospel with her.

Illinik has written a very interesting story with accurate history, lending an air of truth to the story. Although purely fictional, the political and national circumstances of East Europe occurring at that time are actual history. In the beginning, the story does drag a little bit; but after a few chapters it picks up speed and adds suspense to the story.

For history buffs, this is a great novel to read. For those of us who would rather keep track of things happening currently, this story will encourage you to become the person God wants you to be and be reminded of the love of God that never gives up.

Armchair Interviews says: Story of a strong woman and her struggles.
