Milwaukee resident Sunni Boehme, author of Diary of a Turkish Wedding, will be signing copies of her book and talking about living in a Muslim Village at Shop to Carrie On (11045 W. National Ave., West Allis, in the Home Depot Parking Lot), Friday, November 27, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday, November 28, 10 a.m. – Noon.
Diary of a Turkish Wedding is an unexpected true story of Sunni, a very accomplished and dynamic American businesswoman who was already 50 years old when she was seduced back into a relationship with a Turkish man she first met when she was 33 and living in England. She married him and ended up living in his home town, a provincial fundamentalist
Muslim village of only 22 houses, where it felt like life hadn’t changed much in 200 years. The villagers used donkey carts for transportation and made their living drying animal dung to be sold for fuel.
Get the inside story of what life is like for Muslim women in remote areas and gain a deeper insight and understanding of how Islamic beliefs and values affect their lives…and now our world. Though Sunni struggled to adjust to the situation she found herself in, she also discovered the love, devotion, and common humanity present in a world so small, foreign, restrictive, and authoritarian for her. The diary she kept to help her get through and process her experience has been enlightening and amazing readers.

She studied two years in London to become one of the first Life Coaches, and brought the concept back to the United States.
