About this book
A compellingly readable novel of love and loss, faith and betrayal, set against the backdrop of expat life in Bahrain. With appeal to fans of Sadie Jones and Anita Shreve, there will be targeted promotion to reading groups. 'Its technical accomplishment, incrementally raising suspense, involving us in its characters and desires and designs, attests to Caldwell's skills as a playwright.' Steve Davies, "Guardian"
When Euan and Ruth set off with their young daughter to live in Bahrain, it is meant to be an experience and adventure they will cherish. But on the night they arrive, Ruth discovers the truth behind the missionary work Euan has planned and feels her world start to crumble.
