This is a superb book; interesting and passionate. Some relatives of mine lived in Saudi Arabia for many years, and they would often tell me of the restrictions faced by local women and the extreme social codes of Saudi society. After reading Carmen's book, I now have a much better understanding of the culture. Carmen's personal story is particularly fascinating. A first hand account of someone brought up in a modern & democratic society, suddenly exposed to whole new world of strict adherence and harsh regulations.
Her journey is an inspiration.
