Editorial Reviews

"Reading The Feminine Art has been more than worth my while, it has been a garden of delights! Truly, when I finished it this morning I burst into tears - the ending lives up to all of its promises." Frances Kuffel, memoirist "In her fresh voice, Weam Namou writes a charming story with many twists and turns, full of suspense until the end. In The Feminine Art, I was able to see, hear, smell, and taste the texture of Iraqi life. And I understood the effect of war and sanctions on Iraqi citizens." Marie Gates, Author of Shadows on My Mind"The veils of Chaldean life are lifted as this author takes us through the daily lives of a culture that reaches all the way back to the cross and beyond. Each chapter a book in itself, readers will find themselves walking into the familiar and uncertain, seeing how we each are truly connected to the web of life." Charles Gray Wolf, Ph.D. "Weam Namou is the first novelist in America to touch the heart of the Chaldean community. We highly encourage this feminine experience and consider it to be the first positive seed in our modern culture, with the hope that there's much more to come." Salam Romaya, Editor-in-Chief, The Harp Magazine
