Review & Giveaway - The Dawn of Saudi: In Search for Freedom by Homa Pouragari


This poignant mystery is about three people whose lives intertwine in a tale that depicts the oppression of women and the human rights abuse under the pretext of religion. Dawn Parnell made the mistake of marrying a Saudi; Sahar Al-Hijazi is forced to marry a man she doesn't love; Jason Crawford has business ties to the Al-Hijazi family. As the lives of these three people cross paths, the story takes the reader on a dangerous journey from Saudi Arabia where women are considered the property of a man, to United States where women are independent.


The Dawn of Saudi is a gripping mystery that holds your interest.  I enjoyed  getting to know Sahar Al-Hijazi and felt the undeniable emotion tugs as I read about her life.  I've was born and raised in the US and it still shocks me how women are treated in Saudi Arabia.  This is a touching romance that will stick with you long after you have you have stopped reading.
