Summary
An "exquisitely woven" novel of love, exile, and violated honor among a Bedouin tribe from the Jordanian-British author and human rights activist (Leila Aboulela). Salma has committed a crime considered punishable by death among her Bedouin tribe of Hima in the Levant: she had sex out of wedlock and became pregnant. When Salma gives birth to the child, she suddenly finds herself a fugitive on the run from those seeking to restore their honor. Though she is placed in protective custody, Salma's newborn child is ripped from her arms upon arrival. Devastated and disowned, she endures years of isolation before she is ushered to safety in Exeter, England, where she faces a new set of social pressures and expectations. With the help of an elderly English landlady and a Pakistani girl on the run from an arranged marriage, Salma is finally able to forge a new identity. But just as she settles into her new life, the need to return for her lost daughter overwhelms her, and one fateful day, Salma goes back to her village to find the girl. It is a journey that risks everything
