9781425977481: Light of the Desert

It is 1972 when Noora Fendil is born into a wealthy Middle Eastern family. As she grows up blessed with beautiful eyes and a lean body, Noora's intelligent yet plain younger sister, Zaffeera, becomes increasingly jealous. But now that Noora is engaged to the only man she has ever wanted, Zaffeera's envy is about to spiral out of control. Just before her wedding, Noora is framed by Zaffeera, who has developed a diabolical plan to destroy her sister's happiness. Believing she has shamed him and dishonored the family name, Noora's father follows a secret ancient practice and attempts to drown her. As her lifeless body floats away from him, Noora's father has no idea she has survived. Now on a journey to escape her nightmare, Noora's dangerous path takes her from Jordan to Egypt and France, and eventually California. Along the way, she hides her true identity in the hope that one day she can return to prove her innocence, even as she is stalked by a fundamentalist determined to seek justice. Light of the Desert shares the moving tale of a Middle Eastern woman's remarkable journey of survival, courage, and the ultimate act of humanity. “. . . A truly inspiring and engrossing novel. . .”

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Within some very wealthy and elite Middle Eastern families, there is a secret ancient practice rarely heard of in the Western world: honor killing. This unspoken law allows men the right to kill their daughters or female relatives without consequences, if it is believed that they have dishonored their family name. Noora Fendil, the favorite daughter of an influential Middle Eastern businessman, is the victim of such a crime. Shortly before marrying her childhood sweetheart, Noora is framed by her jealous sister who has devised a diabolical plot to destroy Noora s happiness. Believing she has shamed him and in order to preserve his family name, Noora s father attempts to drown her. Unbeknownst to him, she survives and the courageous and remarkable story of Noora, Light of the Desert, begins. Noora s dangerous path takes her from Jordan to a Bedouin village in the desert, on to Egypt, crossing the Mediterranean to France and eventually, to California. All along her path, she must hide her true identity in the hope of one day returning to prove her innocence, as she is relentlessly stalked by a fundamentalist ex bodyguard who vows to bring her back to justice.
