Steeped in history, My Journey Beyond Borders is an autobiography by Rashida Ariff Tadayon.
The opening page of the book describes her arrival in Bahrain, before introducing the reader to each of her family members in chapter two.
I particularly appreciated the inclusion of the plethora of pictures throughout the book, which was both heart-warming and helped chronicle a life filled with learning and wonderful experiences.
It was also incredibly interesting to read about how much life has changed in Bahrain and what it was like to be here through huge events such as the Gulf War.
Her fun-filled days studying in London were also a delight to read.
The book is available from Words Cafe in Budaiya.
