    Unexpectedly denied a visa to remain in the United States, Qanta Ahmed, a young British Muslim doctor, becomes an outcast in motion. On a whim, she accepts an exciting position in Saudi Arabia. This is not just a new job; this is a chance at adventure in an exotic land she thinks she understands, a place she hopes she will belong. What she discovers is vastly different. The Kingdom is a world apart, a land of unparalleled contrast. She finds rejection and scorn in the places she believed would most embrace her.

    Story

    As our newspapers and news inform us there is a war on women in America. While they gloss over the fact the countries such a Saudi Arabia & Pakistan kill their women for being whores.

    Enjoyed the book, enjoyed the voice of the narrarator. The thing of it is....

    Where are all of the books written by women or for women who were not so lucky?

    We can all grab bios on Tina Fey or Suzanne Sommers.

    What about Wafta Sultan, Souad and Rana Husseini? What about some audiobooks from women in Saudi Arabia, Jordan or Pakistan?

    Just Saying.

  • Princess Sultana's Circle: Princess Trilogy, Book 3

    With Princess Sultana's Circle, the extraordinary story of Princess Sultana continues. The forced marriage of Sultana's niece to a cruel and depraved older man, and Sultana's discovery of the harem of sex slaves kept by a royal cousin, makes this brave royal princess more determined than ever to fight the oppression of women in Saudi Arabia. Princess Sultana's cause is given an extra sense of urgency against the background of increased dissent against the Al Sa'uds, and the looming specter of Islamic fundamentalism.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    What does Catherine Byers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lovely lilting voice. I would have rather it been read by Shoreh Aghdasloo but Catherines voice was very nice.

    Hannah Shah is an Imam's daughter. She lived the life of a devout Muslim in a family of Pakistani Muslims in England, but behind the front door, she was a caged butterfly. For many years, her father abused her in the cellar of their home. At sixteen, she discovered a plan to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, and she gathered the courage to run away.

    With Islam all over the media, why are there not more audiobooks on this subject?

    This book was horrifying, heartbreaking and should be read by us all.
