Publisher's Summary

From the twisted alleyways of the ancient medina of Fès to a marriage festival high in the Atlas Mountains, Deborah Rodriguez's entrancing new best seller is a modern story of forbidden love set in the sensual landscape of North Africa. 

Amina Bennis has come back to her childhood home in Morocco to attend her sister's wedding. The time has come for her to confront her strict, traditionalist father with the secret she has kept for more than a year - her American husband, Max.

Amina's best friend, Charlie, and Charlie's feisty grandmother, Bea, have come along for moral support, staying with Amina and her family in their palatial riad in Fès and enjoying all that the city has to offer. But Charlie is also hiding someone from her past - a mystery man from Casablanca.

And then there's Samira, the Bennis' devoted housekeeper for many decades. Hers is the biggest secret of all - one that strikes at the very heart of the family.

As things begin to unravel behind the ancient walls of the medina, the four women are soon caught in a web of lies, clandestine deals and shocking confessions....

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very light, cheesy read

I found the reading and the accents cheesy. The characters poorly developed and superficial. The story line was quite shallow and would often pause for one character to launch into a cheesy monologue of Morocco’s history or culture which felt cheap
