Literary Wives: The Disobedient Wife

The Bookshelf of Emily J.

A disobedient wife, in the context of contemporary Tajikistan, is a wife who wants autonomy and acts on it. The Disobedient Wife (2015), beautifully written if somewhat disjointed in the transitions through time, is a strong statement of what women need and want in order to exercise their agency. We see this theme through the two main female characters of Annika Milisic-Stanley’s book, Nargis and Harriet.

The Disobedient Wife is the June read for the Literary Wives Series, hosted by these bloggers.

each year has its ups and downs and 2015 has not bee an exceptional, but its a matter of appreciating what you have achieved and what has challenged you ,because at the end of the day the challenges teach us a lot and make us better people ,so celebrate with whatever you have got cause think about it, you still have the greatest gift of all and that’s life and it is all because of gods grace.

I thank god because I have achieved so much; I graduated this year with a bachelors degree in mass communication and other many successes I have got ,though there has been challenges but I can end this year with a smile and say its ok and it will be better in time.
