New Book About Saudi Arabia Published - Charades in the Desert Sands - Domestic Violence True Story

"Charades in the Desert Sands" is a Newly Released Book Telling the Horrors Faced by an American Woman While Living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

"Charades in the Desert Sands" is a newly released book by Jade Carrington based on a true story experienced by an American woman who was married to a Saudi man for seven years and lived in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The book focuses on the abuse this woman sustained at the hands of her Saudi husband while in the kingdom with no source of help to be attained. Carrington also tells of the Saudi culture and how cruel indeed it is for Saudi females in the kingdom still today despite modernization and efforts to educate Saudi people.

"Charades in the Desert Sands" was written to inform the general public about America's so-called ally country, the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The incidents written about in the book are real with no direct intention to offend anyone but to tell the personal story as one lived. Hopefully, this experience can help prevent other women from becoming victims of domestic violence or going to fundamentalist Islamic countries like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that differs so significantly from American society and culture and does virtually nothing to protect victims of domestic violence.

The Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a country taking huge leaps forward in regards to modernization and industrialization to only take even more steps backwards when it comes to social issues, common sense, and human rights. The Saudi's attempts to acquire higher education and knowledge abroad is a wasted effort when they are forced to return to a society full of rigid customs, as determined by one's family and religious authorities as pointed out by Carrington. Evident mental anguish and emotional disturbances are prevalent among Saudi's in the name of Allah (God) or one's tribal name.

A glimpse into the daily lives of Saudi's induces a depression unknown to many in civilized nations. Narrow mindedness and brainwashing techniques are not uncommon in this land where men still rule and women are nothing more than chattel to first their fathers and later their husbands.

This book only touches the surface of social problems, cultural beliefs, and superstitions that plague the kingdom still today. One must live the life of the Saudis to attempt to understand and believe its existence. It is enough to make the skin crawl and the American proud to be from a country based on freedom and justice to all.
