9780982507407: The Burning Veil: A Novel of Arabia

The Burning Veil is a story of love and colliding Cultures. Dr. Sarah Moss is in love with Ibrahim, a Saudi Arab. She wants to marry him, but she must first learn if she can live and work with integrity in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia where most women are kept secluded and veiled. Sarah finds work at a local hospital. As she is drawn into Ibrahim’s family—his fierce mother, his welcoming sister, and his brother who hates America—she embarks on a journey to reconcile her two worlds. This compelling portrait of a physician torn between her love for a good man and her craving for independence is also the story of a spiritual quest. A troubled agnostic, Sarah finds Islam to be a spiritual path that is both nurturing and aesthetic. In crisp, clear prose the novel reveals secrets of both the human heart and of the desert kingdom.
