The scene is set as Khadijah Hussein, a westernized, fashionable, Malaysian fashion model and the mother of two turns up at her local Mosque dressed in a Burqa complete with a veil. She is unable to communicate except to utter Muslim prayers. Khadijah's frantic husband contacts her Singapore alumni group including psychiatrist, Dr. Linda Belgrove, who diagnoses Khadijah as having suffered 'Identity Fracture, the worst case she have ever seen.' Members of Khadijah's alumni group decide to take her on a voyage of rediscovery to well known healing sites in Asia, Europe and America to restore Khadijah's identity and allow her to return to her children and husband. The result is a tongue-in-cheek look at Identity issues in Muslim Malaysia following the invasion of Iraq. Culture-clash, thousands of years old religious traditions, and the meaning of life are all examined in this fast-paced Humor Novel set in Malaysia, Singapore, Hawaii, France, Arizona, and the former North Borneo.
