Product Description

Product Description

Saudi Arabia is an ancient culture as old as time itself, yet filled with all the modern conveniences that money provides. Restless and looking for something new and exciting, two nurses traveled to this ancient kingdom to ply their skills and practice close personal contact—along with modern medical care—with people for whom slavery, buying wives, and female subjugation is just a way of life.

Living in a culture far different from their own, they met many wonderful people, both locally and from several other countries, all the while walking on eggshells with the religious police of Saudi Arabia, lest they do something, that as females, was forbidden and could have gotten them deported—or worse, thrown in jail.

Join Ramona Forrest and Judith Corcoran as they explore life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia—from a woman’s point of view.

1.0 out of 5 stars boring self indulgent and racist 24 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was boring and self indulgent like sitting through a strangers holiday slides, right down to a bunion operation. And unless you are an American be prepared to by offended. I tried to skim read as I hate to leave a book unfinished but on this occasion I gave up. Dont be fooled by the cover, if you interested in Saudi culture there are more informative books out there. I hate to give a bad review but on this occasion I felt I had to warn potential customers how miss leading the title and cover are.

Most interesting insight into a secret world. Absolutely enthralling. Women's treatment by men is just jaw dropping. Well written and informative
