Informative and easy to read, 23 May 2010
Well written, easy to read account of one woman's involvement with the family of a sheikh in Al Ain, part of the United Arab Emirates from a time (non-specific) just before economic development took hold up to the present day. Very helpful text regarding the life of muslim women in the UAE. It helped me to understand some of the traditions that exist, particularly with regard to women, prior to visiting the country for my son's wedding.
