    A Novel based in Bahrain.I m very torn between 3 or 4 stars on this one On the one hand I love that it s based in Bahrain, a neighbour state to Dubai and a place that I have visited several times I even attempted to visit the Tree of Life but my driver got lost now I m wondering if that was possibly a good thing On the other hand, the book itself seemed somehow lacking and I really didn t take to the constasnt bible references, I think these could put off many readers.Ruth and Euan Armstron A Novel based in Bahrain.I m very torn between 3 or 4 stars on this one On the one hand I love that it s based in Bahrain, a neighbour state to Dubai and a place that I have visited several times I even attempted to visit the Tree of Life but my driver got lost now I m wondering if that was possibly a good thing On the other hand, the book itself seemed somehow lacking and I really didn t take to the constasnt bible references, I think these could put off many readers.Ruth and Euan Armstrong leave Ireland for a year s posting as missionaries in Bahrain They are permitted to guide the Christians within the population but are strictly prohibited from preaching ...

    I had high expectations for this book sadly I was waiting for this book ever since I heard it was set in Bahrain.when I started reading it I was shocked to see what it was all about The story is meaningless and the writer talks about Bahrain as if it was another country It only shows how little she knows about Bahrain and Islam The whole story is about an Irish couple who decide to move to Bahrain for work, but it turns out that the reason they came was to try to introduce people in Saudi A I had high expectations for this book sadly I was waiting for this book ever since I heard it was set in Bahrain.when I started reading it I was shocked to see what it was all about The story is meaningless and the writer talks about Bahrain as if it was another country It only shows how little she knows about Bahrain and Islam The whole story is about an Irish c...
