Trying to navigate the cultural divide between a permissive and often racist contemporary Western society and her traditional tribal Muslim upbringing, Salma perseveres and creates a new life. But the cries of her lost child will not be silenced; she is driven to return to her childhood village in a shattering journey that will change everything and nothing. She is the author of two other novels, Nisanit and Pillars of Salt.
Brought up in Amman, Jordan, she lives with her husband in Durham, England. Visit her online atwww. Her protagonist is Salma, a member of a Bedouin tribe in Hima, the Levant, who at 16 becomes pregnant out of wedlock—considered by her tribe a crime punishable by death. There she works as a seamstress and barmaid, removes her veil and cautiously gains her independence. Faqir shifts her narrative abruptly between Salma's years in prison and her ongoing life, capturing the reader in a jarring juxtaposition of emotions.
Salma dreams of someday going to Greece—"the nearest she could get to her home without being shot. Donovan, Deborah.
