“Whilst visiting Dubai I read Patricia Holton,Andrea...”

Written on: 26/04/2009 by nessie1958 (1 review written)

Whilst visiting Dubai I read Patricia Holton,Andrea Jones, "Mother Without a Mask: A Westerner's Story of Her Arab Family" with fascination.

Having been born in Bahrain in 1958 and having spent my childhood (to age 21) throughout the Middle East (Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran) together with working in Saudi Arabia for 12 months, I was very curious to read Patricia Holton ' s book.

I think all Western ' s who are negative to the Arabs and their religion should read this book with an open mind… Read Full Review

This is the story of the experiences of Patricia Holton, an American women, after she and her family befriended a couple of young Arab men from the Al-Ain/Buraimi Oasis (which lies along the border between the United Arab Emirates and Oman).

Written on: 25/04/2004 by Joneal (1 review written)

Patricia Holton has revealed a true glimpse of the cloistered, secret life of the traditional Saudi Arabian family. How like the rest of us they are in their love of children and family, but how different they also are in their own private ritualism and traditionalist customs that have bound them even in the 20th century. A delightfully personal view of an insiders view of the very concealed and protected lives of some of the wealthiest people in Saudi Arabia… Read Full Review

Please get your countries straight. This story takes place in United Arab Emirates, not Saudi Arabia and there are big difference between the two. There seems a tendency, especially in the West, to lump all Arabs together as one, but one who has spent any amount of time traveling in the Arab countries can tell you that you will find many cultural differences as you travel from place to place.
