Forbidden Love — Love and Betrayal in Modern-Day Jordan - Norma Khouri

Doubleday, 2003, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Reprint. Dalia was a young, beautiful Arabian Muslim living with her family in Amman, Jordan. At the age of twenty-five, she unexpectedly fell in love with Michael, a major in the Royal Army, and Catholic. For a Muslim woman, any relationship with a Catholic man is forbidden, and Dalia was only too aware that flouting this rule could cost her her life. But they were deeply in love. Norma Khouri's book is a gift to the memory of her friend. A powerful love story that ends in an appalling tragedy, it is also an attempt to bring to the world's attention the continuing practice of honour killing in Jordan — an ancient tradition that encourages the murder of women considered to have dishonoured the family. It is a crime that effectively goes unpunished.”
