Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 849918748X, Paperback)

Despues de relatar la historia real de la nieta de Anita Delgado (la protagonista de Pasion India) en La nieta de la maharani, Maha Akthar nos sorprende una vez mas con esta desgarradora historia de espionaje, amor, guerra, esperanza y traicion durante la ocupacion de la peninsula arabe por el Imperio Otomano en la Primera Guerra Mundial. Khalid y Noura logran escaparse de Turquia, pero al llegar a El Libano, el es condenado por espionaje y ahorcado en una plaza publica. Entonces Noura huye a El Cairo donde se encuentra con Salah, y luego conoce Rania y el grupo de mujeres que se reunen habitualmente en su cafe. Mientras tanto Salah, companero de su difunto marido en el movimiento de liberacion, parte rumbo a Jordania con un ejercito al mando de Lawrence de Arabia para atacar el golfo de Aqaba. Asi es como entre Esmirna, Beirut y El Cairo, estas mujeres libraran su propia guerra en el terreno de la familia y el amor, mientras que los hombres descubriran el alto precio a pagar por su participacion en la Revuelta arabe, de la que todos, tanto hombres como mujeres, quedaran marcados por el resto de sus vidas. / Maha Akthar surprises us again with this harrowing tale of love, war, and betrayal during the occupation of the Arabian Peninsula by the Ottoman Empire in World War II. A group of women that meet regularly in a cafe while their husbands attack the Gulf of Aqaba, fight their own war with their families. These men and women will be marked for the rest of their lives.
