Current Read
This book is one of my numerous buys from India, I just started reading and I think I like it.
It is one of those books which takes you to those worlds which you have little or no idea about. That world which you might never experience, but know exists somewhere on the world map. This book is a sort of autobiography, it is actually about the writer's experience in the Saudi Kingdom. The little you know about these nations is what is fed to you on the internet or the news.


The decisions that change your life are often the most impulsive ones.
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 unparralled contrast. She finds rejection and scorn in the places she believed would most embrace her, but also humor, honesty, loyalty and love. And for Qanta, more than anything, it is a land of opportunity. A place where she discovers what it takes for one woman to recreate herself in the land of invisible women.
