This is a good book in terms of seeing the culture of another country. It captures the time and place quite well. I wasn't as crazy about the writing style. I found transitions in the storyline to be abrupt and awkward.

A really interesting and suspenseful book of a woman and her experiences of Saudi Arabia in the 1960s. Oil, greed, the role of women, murder and loss. It is all here!

I loved this book, especially the writing style, it was continuous and never too descriptive. In terms of plot I really enjoyed it and was very sad at the end and troubled for the main character. A good level of suspense too.

I really enjoyed this book, and felt that the writing was really good without drawing attention to itself.

Poignant story of a young woman who escapes a repressive and patriarchal society in Oklahoma, only to find herself bound by the laws of another such culture in Saudi Arabia. ..beautifully drawn characters and gorgeous prose.
