Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Michael, a young man of Greek origin living in Egypt is accepted at a top college in the USA. He is totally unprepared both scholastically and emotionally. Feeling lonely, he frequents a distant cousin and through him meets Lisa and falls in love with her. He eventually flunks out of college and, heartbroken, has to abandon the girl and return home to work in the family business. Three years later, while dining with a friend he sees Lisa leaving the restaurant with a swarthy well-dressed gentleman. He follows their limousine to their hotel and manages to talk with her. She is now married to an Arab multi - millionaire and they are on their way to reside in his country. He warns her about the life she is about to enter and in less than a year gets an SOS message. He sets about to rescue her.

I liked this book very much. Liked all the history about Egypt. Thanks to Google I was able to browse every place that was mentioned in the book. I felt that I was there.


Dianne Blake Loflin

Loved the storyline and also the information and education about Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the great differences in Socialism, Islam and democracy.
