Product Description

Product Description

Brianna Phillips thought she would never find another man to take the place of her high school sweetheart, Billy Starrett, who was killed in Iraq. That was before she met a very handsome and somewhat mysterious man named Khaleel who, like Brianna, is an engineering student at Columbia University. Before graduation, however, Brianna's life is turned upside down when she becomes pregnant with Khaleel's baby and is suddenly whisked away to a tiny village in the heart of Saudi Arabia's Empty Quarter. Completely separated from everything she has ever known, Brianna quickly discovers that Khaleel is no longer the man she fell in love with. That man has been replaced by a domineering stranger who wants to control everything, especially Brianna. This revelation is followed by other shocks as Brianna tries to adjust to a world that has suddenly turned into an endless nightmare of abuse, suppression, threats, and isolation. Pregnant and cut off from the outside world, Brianna can focus on only three things now: her own safety, the safety of her unborn child, and, most of all, how to escape from a prison built on hatred.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ill informed prejudice 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this thinking it was a biography. It wasn't, it was by an author who has made no effort to research even the most basic details of the Middle East and Islam. The plot was full of holes -even with a private plane it would be impossible to fly from the US to Saudi Arabia without any passport or air traffic control clearance. The action in cell like buildings covered a lack of knowledge about Arab domestic life. The heroine's father claiming that the US was 'just trying to make the world a better place' was a joke .I am a British
Christian and believe that the treatment of women in some Arab countries is unjust, but this novel will only serve to reinforce prejudice and increase hostility.

1.0 out of 5 stars Every Cliche of East Meets West 20 Mar 2014
By Limarki
Verified Purchase
Far fetched and stereotypical. Every conceivable negative trait of a marriage to an Arab is used in this stupid book. Don't bother reading it. Its a mish mash of clichéd situations all rolled into one.

Wow. Such a vivid story. I couldn't put the book down and read it all in one day. Such a brave woman. Excellent reading giving an insight into what life can be like for some women and exposing the day to day struggles in a male dominated society.
