Pamela Windo chronicles her unexpected love affair with Morocco and its people in this wondrous collection of true stories, peeling back layers of history, paint, and finely embroidered fabrics to find the truths in the mysterious and the exotic. She describes the colors, flavors, songs, and textures of an almost dream-like nation. Her stories are of snatched affairs, unforeseen warmth, and subtle eroticism in shadowed courtyards. The result are liberating and uplifting portraits of places and people, each told with an extraordinary delicacy. Behind the veils, she discovers kindness, beauty, and passion that afford her life a whole new dimension.

A quick read for my trip to Morocco. Not the best but parts of it rang true even after only a couple of days in country. Read full review

Killing time before heading to the airport. Anyway, good insight into life in Morocco. I can definitely understand better some of the often times very humurous cultural differences between east and west. Read full review
