Veiled By Privilege by Anne Garboczi Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ll be honest… when I first began reading this book I thought, this isn’t for me. It was far from what I usually read but I was determined to give it my best. I am amazed by this book. Anne Evan’s writing is just outstanding. She truly knows how to bring the characters to life! I was so impressed by the whole thing.
I don’t know a lot about life outside the US, as this is where I’ve always lived but this book brought about an interesting look at life in Saudi Arabia. The things those beautiful women go through is just shocking and truly upsetting. And they are taught that it’s okay.
This book tells the story of Kay, a naive girl who just wants to complete her PHD and Joe, a military expert who is nothing you’d expect. Kay uses a passport of a friend to get into a foreign country, completely unaware of the customs and danger she is walking into. Joe is there by military assignment and thank God for that since Kay puts herself into more danger than you can ever believe, just by being her American self. The two face danger after danger, life threatening circumstances and so much more.
You will have to read this one to find out what happens but I promise this is not a book you want to pass up. Anne Evans created an unforgettable story with this one.
