“The clashes of two worlds” is the theme of this engaging story of two sisters who visit their mother in Morocco after not hearing from her for some years. What they encounter, what they perceive to be, and how they cope with the people in the House in Fez gives the reader an education in differing cultural attitudes.
Leaving England, the twins, who also have not been close over the years, go to Fez to partially get away from their lives' circumstances - both have marital problems.
Arriving, their mother has changed and so is her living arrangement. She is now docile, married to a younger man who has another wife half his age.
This snowballs into the fact that the husband's whole family, his mother included, will move into the House in Fez. The twins have never had a family, according to their narrative, which rubs the women differently.
Muslims and Christians have deep-rooted ways of evaluating life and how one should live it. Ms. Noble does an excellent job of interpreting those conflicts in the story told within the pages of The House in Fez.
It is worth the read for pleasure's sake. However, the content, the twin's narratives, and the way their mother copes for love will keep the reader evaluating each side's struggle to understand the other's. The ending is unpredictable but logical.
At first all seems to be a cocoon of happiness and belonging but soon cracks appear. Mum turns out to be a self-centered cold woman.
The book oozes local atmosphere (been there myself) and also has a solid psychological character built up.
I can really recommend it.
about customs, language, and lifestyles in Morocco. Strained family dynamics round out a great story. I will be sure to read other books by this author as I liked her style.
I relieved it all through this amazing writer step by step.
I also enjoyed the characters at times they me laugh and at other I wanted to cry.
I will recommend this book to all my friends.
