Publisher Description

When Rajaa Alsanea boldly chose to open up the hidden world of Saudi women—their private lives and their conflicts with the traditions of their culture—she caused a sensation across the Arab world. Now in English, Alsanea’s tale of the personal struggles of four young upper-class women offers Westerners an unprecedented glimpse into a society often veiled from view. Living in restrictive Riyadh but traveling all over the globe, these modern Saudi women literally and figuratively shed traditional garb as they search for love, fulfillment, and their place somewhere in between Western society and their Islamic home.

Touching cultural adventure

A must read for all young women in strict cultures. There's a character to suit everyone and to help you cope through the struggles of growing up in the adversity of ones culture. I've greatly enjoyed this story. I've owned the book for years and it was thrilling to hear it read to me after all this time.
