Description: Sarah Moss must decide whether to marry Ibrahim, a devout Saudi Arabian. His fierce jealous mother hates and fears her as does his brother, an Islamist hardliner. A feminist, an idealist, and very much in love, Sarah aims to live with integrity. Can she—dare she— in the kingdom where women are kept veiled and secluded?
This love story of cultural collision is also a spiritual quest for Sarah, who is both fascinated and repelled by Islam.
Former Middle East journalist Jean Grant takes us behind the locked doors of Saudi Arabian society. She presents a picture of the controversial kingdom on the cusp of change and of the men and women, both expatriates and nationals, who either embrace or courageously confront their destiny.
