Oman. The ancient land of frankincense, wind-swept deserts, craggy mountaintops and turquoise seas. Into this magical nation come three remarkable women, each facing a crossroad in her life.
Rachel, an American war photographer, who is struggling to shed the trauma of her career. Now she is headed to Oman to cover a quite different story – for a glossy travel magazine.Sophie Khan, a bubbly British woman to keep up with the glitz of Dubai and ready to give up on love. She has rashly volunteered as Rachel's ‘fixer’, a job she's never heard of in a country she knows nothing about. And Miza, a young woman living far from her beloved homeland of Zanzibar. As the second wife of Tariq, she remains a secret from his terrifying ‘other’ wife, Maryam. Until one day, when Tariq fails to come home . . .
The Zanzibar Wife is a bewitching story of clashing cultures and conflicting beliefs, of secrets and revelations, of mystery and magic
