This novel is the poignant story of a strong Iraqi woman journalist and poet who must flee her country, leaving her beloved daughter behind, to escape the death clutches of Saddam's secret police. She escapes through the desert into Saudi Arabia, only to be arrested, thrown into jail, and face certain deportation. A Wall Street lawyer makes valiant efforts to save her but finds that it is virtually impossible to get her asylum in any country. This thrilling and beautifully written book holds important lessons about the differences and similarities between the Western and Muslim worlds.
