Summary
It is 1962, and young British nurse Pauline Samarraie arrives in Baghdad with her Iraqi husband, Munem, and their young son. Munem's career is progressing well and life in Iraq is exotic and full of promise. The only strain is Munem's family, who cannot bring themselves to accept this Englishwoman as one of their own. Enter Saddam Hussein, a family friend and a rising star in the ruling Ba'ath party. Suddenly things in Iraq begin to change. Saddam and his politics are about to have the most devastating effect on Pauline and her loved ones. This book is a passionate first-hand account of life in Iraq under Saddam Hussein. It is the heartwrenching story of a mother desperately searching for answers in a terrifying, bloody regime
