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 That man has been replaced by a domineering stranger who wants to control everything, especially Brianna.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.

This book is dull, uninteresting and very badly written. I am so disappointed as I was looking forward to reading it. The author's style is so child-like, that the story has no credibility. It must be an art form to make a story with such good potential so boring. I couldn't read it, found myself skimming most of the first few chapters and in the end, gave up. In my opinion it is a waste of money.

I bought this book thinking it was a true story...... shortly into the book a realized it is made up of complete un-researched and badly put together dribble. The author appears to have no idea about the culture or country they are writing about, but a clear hate of Islam!! The statement that apparently come from the Koran are unreferenced and therefore complete lies!!!! I am astonished that a book like this is allowed to be published!!

Taking it on the basis that it is A STORY it still is not thought out and has a clear agenda against a certain group of people, culture and religion. There are plenty of other books that do give TRUE stories and accounts of other peoples real life experiences that can be read where the reader can learn about the culture and religion (good or bad) without the lies this book offers.

Sorry for the people that enjoyed this book, but in fact i am offended by this book and would be very happy with a refund!!
