The Ruins of Us

by Keija Parsinnen

Against all the odds, American Rosalie has made a success of her life in Saudi Arabia and her marriage to a rich Arab. She has adapted to the restrictions of living under an authoritarian and misogynistic regime. What could go wrong now? Interesting and thought provoking in the current Middle East climate. A promising debut novel.


'Now if you will just calm down and think about this like a rational person, I know that you will see that I've done nothing outside of my rights' Abdullah continued. 'When you chose to marry me and move here, you told me that you were ready to accept my culture. You said you loved my culture. Well, this is my culture.'
