Jacqueline St. Joan is a former judge, law professor, feminist and now a novelist whose My Sisters Made of Light strips back the veil from honor killing and women's chattelization in Pakistan.  St. Joan weaves a story of intrigue and passion and in the telling lays bare practices that will chill westerners to the bone.  The story may never see the light of day in Pakistan and the names of her informers have to be disguised, so deep are the fears of both men and women on this subject.
