A very interesting and well written book about a young woman who lives in a mountainous area of what is now United Arab Emirates - set in the 1950s, she becomes the third wife of a pearl trader, before the oil industry came to dominate the region. A fascinating story written by an Emirati woman, with an interesting section on her own background and the writing of the book. Planning to put this one aside for a bookring.

The book arrived just when I was on my way to holidays in the Tirol and I had no time to make a JE.
Looking forward to reading it. Having visited Yemen, Qatar and Oman with my ex-pat family I'm very interested in the history of this country.

I was very interested in this book as I visualise the region. I didn't know about the wind towers but my son in law explained the process to us. It works better than air conditionning and for free but people there prefer modern ways...
Thanks a lot for sharing.
