This Month’s Book: Finding Nouf By Zoe Ferraris

Filed under: Finding Nouf,What is next?? — susanbright @ 6:20 pm

 When 16-year-old Nouf disappears just days before her arranged wedding is to take place it appears as if she is just one more runaway bride.  Also missing is a camel and pick up truck and all clues point to the fact that she has run away into the desert.  Nayir Sharqi, a family friend as well as a desert guide is brought in to lead the search party. When Nouf’s body is discovered ten days later and the coroner concludes that she did not die from dehydration as suspected, but from drowning, Nayir is deeply troubled and knows that he has got to find out what really happened to Nouf.

Finding Nouf takes place in modern-day Saudi Arabia, where men and women remain segregated and marriages are arranged. We have read books that have taken place in Afghanistan, Morocco, India, China and Iran and have learned a great deal about their culture. Join us in reading Finding Nouf, a  page turner mystery which will give us a glimpse into the lives of the Saudi Arabian people.
