Publisher's Summary

She is called Nurdane, the famed weaver of Mavisu. From her remote mountain village in southwestern Turkey, she creates dowries for young brides: dazzling rugs that are marvels of shape and color, texture and light. Her unique rugs possess remarkable healing qualities that have inspired local legend, but it is her hands that are the heart of her mystery. An artist's hands. A virgin's hands.An extraordinary series of events drives Nurdane to question the limitations of her faith and culture as she is caught between the cost of remaining pure in body and spirit...or risking everything for the chance to live a loving life.

What a wonderful story

This book truly was transporting. I loved the characters and found myself caring what happened to them. As a background setting, it offered a glimpse into a foreign land and culture. Hand-knotted middle eastern rugs.

The heroine is a truly complex character, whose joys and sorrows I felt with her, along with the breath of the desert's heat.
