Restless and looking for something new and exciting, two nurses traveled to this ancient kingdom to ply their skills and practice close personal contact-along with modern medical care-with people for whom slavery, buying wives, and female subjugation is just a way of life. Living in a culture far different from their own, they met many wonderful people, both locally and from several other countries, all the while walking on eggshells with the religious police of Saudi Arabia, lest they do something, that as females, was forbidden and could have gotten them deported-or worse, thrown in jail. Join Ramona Forrest and Judith Corcoran as they explore life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia-from a woman's point of view....

Lifting the Veil of Secrets in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Reviews
Should be titled 'Party in Saudi Arabia"I purchased this book thinking I was going to find out what life for women in Saudi Arabia is really like. However, you will not learn that from this book.Instead, you will read about and endless number of illegal parties, eating illegal food, drinking illegal beverages, driving about in illegal ways and generally ignoring the law. In between, you may get a nursing story of two.Not the book for lifting the veil.Unless it's lifting the veil on how to party illegally in Saudi Arabia.
This book made me aware of the fact that I live in a country that honors in Women's rights.
Badly written, badly edited, disjointed and full of boring descriptions of parties and excursion outside Saudi Arabia. Has gems like " Being European, Angus no doubt ever thought of infidelity as anything of note" or "English type Tylenol for me, Panadol, I believe". Even I know there is no such thing as a different type of Tylenol,the ingredient of Tylenol, acetaminophen, is called Paracetamol in Europe. You'd think a nurse would know that or at least go through the effort to double check before publishing a book. It reads like a haphazard sloppy write up designed to make a quick buck. I can't recommend it, especially not knowing that there are any other great books on the subject.
If you don't know anything about Saudi Arabia, you might like this book. Two US nurses party, drink and carouse their way through a few years work in Saudi Arabia. They get a great education about the miseries faced by women, the ill and the weak in Muslim culture. They're surprised by the behavior of the royal, the privileged and the male. It's a fine potato chip book.
Interesting in the sense of learning more about the life of women who wear the veil in Saudi Arabia. Two nurses really just keep a diary/ journal of their time in the country. Reads like a travel diary, certainly not a piece of well written literature.
Excellent ReadI would strongly recommend this book to any one who is considering leaving our Country to live & work, in Saudi Arabia.....
Great bookI chose this book I wanted to know how people live over there it was a well written book I couldn't put it down.
Interesting. But Ramona is pretty judgmental and petty. Ruined the reading experience for me. Half the book was filled with her opinions of people and places not tales of her life in Saudi Arabia.
Bored, couldn't wait to finish this book. It was more about the parties she attends rather than medical care/hospital life in Saudi. Full.
Although this book could have used some editing with typos, repetitive themes, and some poor writing, it was an interesting read.
