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.
