Kristiane Backer was one of the very first presenters on MTV Europe. She gained a cult following and became a darling of the European press, but something was missing from her life. A fateful encounter introduced her to a completely different world to the one she knew, the religion and culture of Islam. After reading the Quran and traveling widely in the Islamic world she knew that she had discovered her spiritual path and she embraced Islam. This private memoir tells the story of her conversion and explains how faith at last gave her inner peace and the meaning she had sought. With abundant color photos. “From MTV to Mecca? From babe to burka is more like it!”–Bob Geldoff
