Women of Sand and Myrre
A novel written by Lebanese writer Hanan al Shaikh
Another capturing novel that speaks strangely in women voices in odd situations that sarcastically universal ,despite the location of the plot ; Saudi Arabia.
Inside the oppression of just the notion of being a woman in such a place, the writer carries us passionately and with so much powerful emotions within each woman, a Lebanese, Saudi, American and another Saudi … the connection between them inside the desert ,and those same emotions that women join regardless to who they are …
A great journey in the inside of what it means to be a woman.. with all its vulnerability .. weakness, strength, emotions and frustrations
