The story of her fulfilling life must be shared, not only fot the benefit of her family, but as an example of a women who has lived her life to its fullest without regret, took her challenges in strides, and who has touched the lives of so many around her. Written by Zainab's daughter, Khalsom Taib, this book not only focuses on Zainab and her family, but encapsulates little "life" lessons within the stories told.
