    Exploring the birth period of Islam, this biography focuses on one of the most prominent and respected Muslim women in history, Khadija, the wife of the Prophet Muhammad. Addressing both her devotion and her leadership roles in Mecca, this book shines light on a figure who is an inspiration to women, both Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

    I am doing research on Khadija and came across this lovely book, which I plan to purchase at Barnes & noble. Can you tell me the artist/source for the book's beautiful cover? Thanks very much.
