The author wrote this book as a gift to the memory of her closest friend, who was a young, beautiful Arabian in love with a man from the Royal Army. He was Catholic, and such a relationship is forbidden. It is a powerful love story that ends in an appalling tragedy. Khouri is attempting to bring to the world's attention the continuing practice of honor killing in Jordan - an ancient tradition that encourages the murder of women considered to have dishonored their families. This book will strike a chord with women everywhere and is a testimony to the courage and strength of women. The dust jacket is clipped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
