Liebe, Mut und Schicksal in Marokkos Wüste. London: Die erfolgreiche Steuerberaterin Isabelle Fawcett führt ein zufriedenes, aber wenig aufregendes Leben. Doch eines Tages macht Isabelle auf dem Dachboden ihres Elternhauses eine Entdeckung: In einer alten Schachtel findet sie ein silbernes Tuareg-Amulett mit einer geheimen Inschrift. Das Geheimnis des Amuletts lässt Isabelle nicht mehr los. Und so reist sie in die Sahara, um dem Rätsel auf den Grund zu gehen. Bei ihren Nachforschungen stösst sie immer wieder auf den Namen Mariata. Marokko, etwa fünfzig Jahre früher: Die junge Tuareg Mariata verliebt sich in den Krieger Amastan. Doch ihr Vater zwingt sie, mit ihm und seiner neuen Frau in ein Haus im Süden von Marokko zu ziehen. Als er sie auch noch gegen ihren Willen verheiraten will, flieht Mariata in die Wüste. Voller Sehnsucht begibt sie sich auf eine lange, beschwerliche Reise quer durch die Sahara - immer auf der Suche nach Amastan. Je mehr Isabelle über die Geschichte von Mariata erfährt, umso deutlicher wird, dass ihr Leben und das der Tuareg untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind
