Mirage by Soheir Khashoggi 

In this passionate, spellbinding story of one young woman's fight for freedom, Soheir Khashoggi takes us into the hidden world of the Middle Eastern aristocracy and exposes the reality of life behind the veil for women in today's harems.

Despite her fairytale childhood of extravagant wealth and royal privilege, Amira accepts that she will be sold into marriage and that she will never be able to step outside her house without being swathed in black veils. But she is not prepared for the savagery of the husband she first meets on her wedding night, or the increasingly abusive control her exerts over her. In a daring attempt to save her life and sanity, she escapes with her baby to start a new life in the United States where she discovers true love, as well as a fulfilling career. Yet Amira must always live with the terrifying threat of her past - and her ruthless husband - catching up with her.

'Mirage' is a powerful story of love and revenge. It is also a moving tribute to the strength and endurance of women who defy the yoke of male dominance.
