This volume is both a travel book and a love story. Anne Caulfield writes of travelling in Jordan and falling in love with a Bedouin. Her narrative offers insights into the country - from the traditional tent life of nomadic tribes to the first woman MPs battle with fundamentalist colleagues. Many Western myths about the Arab world are unpicked by the author, but this is not an impersonal analysis as the cultural and political issues presented are all set within the framework of a love story.
