Description: An American woman gives up her job at Paramount Pictures, Inc.Hollywood, California and follows her husband to the oil fields of Saudi Arabia, an underdeveloped country of the nineteen fifties. She lives in a fenced in compound, isolated from the veiled and shrouded local women. Her open face and twentieth century manners disturb the simplicity of village life, and the black robed figures run from her. She determines to find a place for herself in this closed society. Thus she challenges the tabus, Oil Company directives, religious zealots, armed soldiers and guards of the Royal Hareem. Under a veil of secrecy, she becomes friends with the family of the Governor of the Eastern Province, first cousins of the King. One day a Princess tells her: "There is a Prince who wants to marry your daughter." Was this the crowning glory of success, or had she dug herself too deeply into a society she could not accept as her own.
