Conversion stories often make good narratives, and this one is no exception. Born and raised in Turkey, Derya Little was still an adolescent when she rejected her Muslim faith, embraced atheism, and then lost her moral compass. During her college years in Istanbul, she met an American woman whose friendship and conversation challenged her beliefs and led her on the difficult path to Christianity. Eventually, her search for the fullness of truth led her to the Catholic Church. Little’s eloquent descriptions of her interior struggles, fears and joys in each step of her journey make this inspiring reading.
