This book uses the stories of early modern women in the Mediterranean who left their birthplaces families and religions to reveal the complex space women of the period occupied socially and politicallyIn the narrow sense the word renegade as used in the early modern Mediterranean referred to a Christian who had abandoned his or her religion to become a Muslim With Renegade Women Eric R Dursteler deftly redefines and broadens the term to include anyone who crossed the era’s and region’s religious political social and gender boundaries Drawing on archival research he relates three tales of women whose lives afford great insight into both the specific experiences and condi February book club feat The Author We had a great book club discussion about this month's selection and I am just honored to be able to talk about books with women who are intelligent fair minded and open to looking at the world in different ways Mr Dursteler was engaging and very easy to relate to sharing his considerable knowledge with us while showing a great interest in our opinions and ideas One of my favorite parts was hearing him tell about the cover art which I find beautiful and intriguing As a book club pick in general I think this is a little bit highbrow but then it wasn't written for book club As text for a history class I would give it five stars 4 for being better than most textbooks and 1 for being short Too bad I'm not a student Can I get extra credit anyway?My imagination was sparked by the idea of these brave passionate women making choices for themselves that went against the s and traditions of their cultures They were willing to use whatever means were available to them specifically religion and religious laws and customs to change the trajectories of their lives They truly lived outside their comfort zone With the backdrop of the Mediterranean landscape how could this not make a fascinating and beautiful historical novel?
