Great book, a page turner, and I learned much about Saudi from an insider.
Sarah Moss, an American physician, wants to marry a Saudi Arab. As she is drawn into his family – his fierce mother, his welcoming sister, and his brother who hates America – she embarks on a journey to reconcile her two worlds. This is the compelling story of a woman torn between her love for a good man and her need for independence. In crisp clear prose, The Burning Veil reveals secrets of the human heart and the desert kingdom.
