In the vast necropolis called the City of the Dead, she finds, and helps, Leyla, who is hiding from her abusive husband and inciting fellow Muslim women to rebel against the oppression under which they exist.
The author immediately drew me into this story of women battling the violence of men, both in the UK and Egypt, and their fight against traditions, religion and oppression.
It shows us how women the world over can develop strong kinships despite their religion, race or upbringing. She also excellently evoked the political unrest in which Beth becomes caught up in, as well as the heat, squalor and smells of Egypt.
The reader can’t help but cheer on the well-drawn characters of Beth and Layla, and the other women in this story, in their battle. The realisation, once again, is drummed home of how fortunate I am not to live under such an oppressive regime.
This was the first novel I’d read by Dianne Noble, and I’m really looking forward to reading her other books. Very entertaining and educational!
