Empowering and releasing diverse talent into the community so that women can easily step into and excel in leadership roles.

The City a/Veils by Zoe Ferrais

I picked up this book to try to learn something about how it feels to live in Saudi Arabia, something fiction usually does for me more than non-fiction. It is a murder mystery told in shifting points of view – the non-traditional police detective, the woman investigator, struggling in a non-traditional role, yet required to fit into traditional norms, the highly religious man who has worked with her and cares about her, but cannot accept many things about her, and the American woman whose husband disappears her shortly after she arrives in the country, and who must struggle in a foreign country to find and save her husband and herself.

It was very informative, but even better, very enjoyable to read.
