Summary
Gin Mitchell knows a better life awaits her when she marries hometown hero Mason McPhee. Raised in a two-room shack by her Oklahoma grandfather, a strict Methodist minister, Gin could hardly believe that a handsome college man like Mason would look her way. And nothing can prepare her for the world she and Mason step into when he takes a job with the Arabian American Oil company in Saudi Arabia. In the gated compound of Abqaiq, Gin and Mason are given a home with marble floors, a houseboy, and a gardener. Even among the veiled women and strict laws of shariah, Gin?s life has become the stuff of fairy tales. But when a young Bedouin woman is found dead, washed up on the shore, Gin's world closes in around her, and the one person she trusts is nowhere to be found
Summary
Traces the experiences of an impoverished 1960s Oklahoma native who follows her husband to glamorous Saudi Arabia, where the death of a young Bedouin woman causes her to question the decadence and corruption of her new home
