Portugal, 1486: Europe is emerging from the Dark Ages, and new lands are being discovered every day. But the East is still unchartered territory… Oblivious to the invasions, massacres, and religious fanaticism that characterize the fifteenth century, a young girl falls in love with a noble Arabian tribal leader. But all eyes are on the Portuguese fleets in the Arabian Gulf, intent on securing the profitable spice trade. Abdulaziz Al-Mahmoud weaves a tapestry of momentous historical events with stories of love, honor, and nobility, while guiding us around the world of Lisbon, Cairo, Jeddah, and Istanbul.
