Emily Ryan is maxed-out on her credit cards and jobless in Morocco. Rafi Hassan expects others to obey him without question. When he throws her a financial lifeline, she wishes that he would offer her more.
On top of the inconvenient emotions unleashed by Rafi’s compelling green eyes, Emily soon clashes with his unyielding patriarchal attitudes and acceptance of the centuries-old traditions that dictate life in the sleepy village of Taghar. Will she succeed in persuading her intransigent employer to allow his teenage daughter Nour more freedom?
As the seasons turn and the olives ripen, Emily dares to dream of winning his heart—until danger threatens from an unexpected quarter
The slow pace of Moroccan life, along with its vibrancy and colours echoes through this charming story. Emily and Rafi are world's apart in both culture and status, Although sometimes telling rather than showing, the story moves at a fair pace towards a climax I didn't see coming. The characters are well balanced and engaging, complete with flaws they don't bother to hide. Worth reading.
