Inshallah by Sybil Powell Romance


What is the genre of your book?
Romance of mixed cultures
What inspired you to write Inshallah?
I lived in Saudi Arabia for ten years during which time I developed Saudi friends and lived with them when my husband was away. I became thoroughly involved in Saudi life at middle class level and gained an understanding of these lovely people which I wished to share, particularly as there was so much misunderstanding between our two cultures.
Will this book be a standalone or part of the series?
Stand alone book as the book was written while I was living in Saudi and now I have since left it would be impossible to recreate the atmosphere that I had at that time.
What message would you like to convey with this book? 
Although this book was written in 1978 it describes  life there at that time I believe it would help an understanding between West and the Middle East and between Muslims and Christians. It is not a religious book but a book describing life out there at that time in the form of a dangerous love affair in an entertaining way.

Frankly I don’t know of one.
