Isabella was a thirty year old wife and mother when she was abducted while running errands. She is sold to a Saudi Arabian prince, Latif. The prince finds himself captivated by her but she refuses to submit to his will.
This novel will keep the reader up late into the night. I was unable to stop reading. The life Isabella is sold into is one few western people can understand. I became so involved in Isabella's plight that I became angry and stressed. I wanted to fight for her. I had to remind myself that this was a work of fiction. This is the author’s first novel. I suspect that her skill will just keep developing and maturing. All of the characters had redeeming qualities, even the prince. I cared about him. The author introduces the reader to the culture of Saudi Arabia. She illustrates the life Saudi women are forced to live. There are few weak points in this book but one of them is the dialogue. It feels unnatural. There is a Christian message deeply rooted in this book. God has a plan for our lives; we need only to submit to His will and allow Him to live in us.
