The plot outline revolves around the kidnapping of Sarah, a four year old English girl, taken away to Saudi Arabia. The story follows a complicated path of later getting back to England, her reawakening memories including the resurfacing of her childhood English, the betrayal by a friend, and her Saudi father's determination to get her back.
The novel is my examination of a land where women who have no rights are juxtaposed against females in the west enjoying hard-won freedoms that are relatively new even in the advanced democracies. My book recounts many true events such as the execution of women for what we would regard as minor infractions of a pre-industial, medieval code. But now with more contact with the West, and internet and modern travel and communications, there is occurring a gradual awakening, among many men as well. But it is mostly the women of the Middle East who are rebelling, and this novel is my attempt to stir the growing flames and encourage these brave examples of deep courage.
