A remarkable and thoroughly enjoyable book!
Anyone who has either lived in SA or is considering relocating there should not miss this!
The seriousness of some situations & her humour behind it all had me in knots. Loved this book, you need to read this!!
The descriptive writing gives a wonderfully atmospheric picture of the medieval, almost Biblical, Saudi culture when the author and her husband arrived in the country, to its rapid transformation and modernisation.
From her original stand point of apprehension and being almost afraid of becoming invisible in a male-dominated society, the author slowly but surely pushed boundaries and became a ground breaking entrepreneur in the most unlikely of situations. This she did partly by quickly learning Arabic in order to network more easily and befriend the native Saudi population, royalty to nomadic tribes alike.
Despite being incredibly informative, the writing is witty, absorbing and thoroughly enjoyable.
More than anything this book is a love story of how the author and her family fell hopelessly in love with the country, the people and (of course) the wonderful standard of living they were able to enjoy.

Having worked for some years in Riyahd the book reminded me of many facets of the life and culture. The people were always hospitable once you got to know them.Published on 13 April 2013 by Andrew
