REVIEW Sweetness in the Belly CHARACTERS × eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Camilla Gibb Camilla Gibb ↠ 8 FREE DOWNLOAD Lim in a remarkable and moving examination of race religion and identity in today's world Previo. Lilly is the only child of a couple of wandering hippy English parents born in Yugoslavia breast fed in the Ukraine weaned in Corsica freed from nappies in Sicily and walking by the time we got to the Algarve In Morocco she s left in the care of the Great Abdal while her parents go jaunting only to learn she is suddenly an orphan Raised by the Great Abdal a muslim Sheikh and Mohammed Bruce Mahmoud a fiery haired ex British Muslim convert she found that once I was led into the absorption of prayer and the mysteries of the u ran something troubled in me became still When she is 16 she and her friend Hussein make a pilgrimage to the city of Harar in Ethiopia to the compound of Sheikh Jami Abdullah Rahman direct descendent of a saint On route they stay at the Emperor of Ethiopia s palace courtesy of a letter of introduction from Mohammed Bruce Because Lilly is farenji white and the Sheikh is very racist as is everyone else she encounters there she is separated from Hussein and sent to live with the sister of the Sheikh s third wife Noura an Oromo while Hussein stays to be one of his disciples Lilly learns the language of the Hararans who are not black but consider themselves Arab who use the local Oromo population as serfs and combine old tradition with Islam She falls in love with Aziz a young local doctor half Hraran half Sudanese almost an outcast because he is black He introduces her to a less all pervasive interpretation of Islam and politics Famine strikes the north while the Emperor has cavier flown in from Europe for his own dinner Unrest stirs the soldiers take over in the name of communism and uickly put in place a military dictatorship Lilly escapes being rounded up with anyone else who has ties to the Emperor though she never met him and makes it to London where she becomes a nurse and with her friend Amina sets up an office to keep track of all the refugees uniting them with family members all in the hope of finding Aziz s name on a listI loved this book It s become one of my favourites easily so and strangely enough given the subject matter I would even call it a comfort read It s a dark story yet I did not find it depressing for a second due to the uality of the writing Gibb has a light touch and holds back from telling us what to feel or how to react reading this book was like feeling a breeze against your cheek Even brutality is rendered bittersweet through the light touch of Gibb s word choices It is never saccharine never melodrammatic and opens a door into a world few of us have any idea or understanding ofA couple of things I didn t understand why did Lilly and Hussein stay in Ethiopia and how did she manage to get through nurse training in England when she d had no formal education Minor uibblesThere are some brutal moments in the story Most especially disturbing is the scene of female circumscion which did make me turn green riveted though I was I d seen it on an SBS documentary years ago the first time I learned that it happened at all it is illegal but still practised in many places The Ethiopan sections are set in the 1970s Lilly is 19 when she flees which is not so very long ago They believed it made women pure that it kept them from being on heat and that they would never get a husband if they weren t infibulated It s uite terrifying As Aziz points out though it s not actually an Islamic traditionBut there is a beautiful delicate balance between the horrific traditions and superstitions Islam and a modern way of thinking Lilly as narrator is never shaken from her beliefs though she has occasion to uestion her own nature She shows a human side to Islam a side as familiar as Christianity what I mean is her religion never comes across as weird scary alien etc The similarities between Islam and Christianity come through clearly I also liked the truer understanding of jihad as an inner struggle with the flaws of your own nature not with another person country or cultureIt is the way this book is written and Lilly s voice that make it strangely warm and comforting as well as humorous at times philosophical world weary honest enlightening touching It is such a human story and I especially find it interesting that it closely follows the lives of women in Africa and the refugees crowded into the council estate flats in London It is through the daily lives of women who worked and cooked and sang and found husbands for their children and kept the old traditions alive that the city of Harar really comes aliveThere is also insight into the world of refugees and the communities they establish in other parts of the world While the author confesses she took some liberties with geography and history still this book fleshed out a country and a people who were only ever in my mind images of black skeletons staggering through a desert thanks to the News Despite the uglier moments the uglier side to their world and way of life the characters were so well drawn
