The Translator

(1999)
A novel by

 
Sammar is a young Sudanese widow working as an Arabic translator in a university department. Numb with grief after losing her husband, and estranged from her young son, she is adrift -an exile in a hostile country. Things change when she falls in love with Rae -but, twice divorced and a self-proclaimed cynic, he is totally different from Sammar: secular, worldly, and not a Muslim.
