In her memoir, Qanta Ahmed, a young British Muslim doctor, learns that the decisions that change your life most are often those made impulsively.
After unexpectedly being denied a visa to remain in the United States, Ahmed accepts a position in Saudi Arabia. This offer is not just a new job, but also an opportunity for adventure in a place she thinks she understands and will belong in.
The reality is much different. Where she thought she would be embraced, she finds rejection and scorn. But she also discovers humor, honesty, loyalty, and love.
