This is the life story of beautiful woman who grew up in the west and married into the infamous Bin Laden family.

Like a fish out of water. This is a lavish love story that becomes a nightmare and a harrowing escape. Detailing the hardline Wahhabism that dominates the Kingdom.

Written in the wake of 9/11. I would recommend his autobiography to anyone that is interested in studying divergent cultures.
