"Isabelle's estranged archeologist father dies, leaving her a puzzle. In a box she finds some papers and a mysterious African amulet--but their connection to her remains unclear until she embarks on a trip to Morocco to discover how the amulet came into her father's possession. When the amulet is damaged and Isabelle almost killed in an accident, she fears her curiosity has gotten the better of her. But Taïb, her rescuer, knows the dunes and their peoples, and offers to help uncover the amulet's extraordinary history, involving Tin Hinan--She of the Tents--who made a legendary crossing of the desert, and her beautiful descendant Mariata. Across years and over hot, shifting sands, tracking the Salt Road, the stories of Isabelle and Taïb, Mariata and her lover become entangled with that of the lost amulet. It is a tale of souls wounded by history and of love blossoming on barren ground."--Page 4 of cover

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
