Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Born into a distinguished Arab-American family and raised amid privilege, Lisa Halaby was in the first co-ed freshman class at Princeton, graduating in 1974 with a degree in architecture and urban planning. Then in 1976, she was introduced, on an airport runway, to King Hussein of Jordan, a direct descendant of the prophet Muhammad. In less than two years, she was his wife, Noor al-Hussein, Queen of Jordan.With eloquence and candour, Noor talks frankly of the many challenges of her life as a wife and partner to the monarch, providing both an intimate portrait of the late King Hussein and his quest for peace in the Middle East, and a moving account of the demands his public role as world statesman placed on the royal couple's private life.Sharing a personal perspective on the past three decades of world history, A Leap of Faith highlights Queen Noor's views on Islam & the West; the challenges of rearing her family; her work as Queen and humanitarian activist; and her struggles to protect her husband as he slipped into illness. It is refreshingly candid and clear-eyed, a true love story set against the turbulent politics of the last 30 years. The dramatic and inspiring story of one woman's incredible journey into the heart of a man and his nation.

Book Description Softcover. Condition: New. New Ed. Born into a distinguished Arab-American family, Lisa Halaby was a strongly independent young woman. After studying architecture at Princeton, her work on projects in the Middle East gave her a profound understanding both of the links between the environment and social problems, and also of the tumultuous history of the Arab nations. Then, in 1974, her life took a very different turn, when her father introduced her to the world's most eligible bachelor, King Hussein of Jordan. After a whirlwind romance, she became Noor Al Hussein, Queen of Jordan. With eloquence and honesty, Queen Noor speaks of the obstacles she faced as a young bride and of her successful struggle to create a role for herself as a humanitarian activist. She tells of her heartbreaking miscarriage and the births of her four children, along with her continuing support for King Hussein's campaign to bring peace to the Arab nations. But most of all this is a love story - an honest and engaging portrait of a truly remarkable woman and the man she married. Seller Inventory # DADAX075381756X
