    Forced to wed to keep her inheritance, independent Lady Jocelyn Kendal finds an outrageous solution: she proposes marriage to Major David Lancaster, an officer dying from his Waterloo wounds. In return for making her his wife, she will provide for his governess sister. But after the bargain is struck and the marriage is made, the major makes a shocking, miraculous recovery.

    Story

    Whilst the story line was quite interesting, the narrator just lacked the ability to give this listening experience its full potential. The engrained British class system so epitomised by voice, appeared beyond this narrators range.

    Among the well-to-do families of Jeddah, Palestinian-born desert guide Nayir is an outsider. But when Nouf ash-Shrawi, the sixteen-year-old daughter of a wealthy Saudi dynasty, disappears just before her arranged marriage, Nayir is the man the Shrawis trust to bring her home. Days later Nouf's body is found in the desert, but Nayir's task is not over; he feels compelled to uncover the disturbing circumstances surrounding her death.

    Story

    With this book I felt I'd been given a glimpse into a culture that would normally have been closed to me. What a fascinating experience. Both male and female characters were brilliantly brought to life by the narrator Jonathan Keeble who effortlessly drew me into both the mystery and the world in which the book is set. Can't wait for Ms. Ferraris to continue the journey.
