1 Book Recommendation: "The Ruins of Us" by Keija Parssinen

By Melody R.

"The Ruins of Us is a first novel by the author, but she writes from first-hand experience having lived in Saudi Arabia for twelve years as a third-generation expatriate."

Book Summary: "Rosalie, an American expat and her wealthy Saudi husband, Abdullah reach an impasse when Abdullah takes a second wife during his mid-life crisis. The two become so involved with their own problems they overlook the more important fact that their teenage son has become involved with a controversial sheikh whose ideas threaten to destroy their family."

Sounds like an interesting read! Thanks for sharing. It's nice to read perspectives from other cultures. It reminds us how connected we all are as a human race--regardless of background and location.
