From a major novelist of the Arab world comes a frank, funny and fearless story about two women looking for love, set in Italy, Lebanon and London
Best friends Huda and Yvonne are on holiday in the Italian Riviera. Now grown up, successful and independent, their adolescent tribulations in Lebanon are far behind them - but the problems of love, sex and family spring eternal. Yvonne doesn't know what she's doing wrong, either there or back in London - she seems to spend her time waiting for the right man to come along and not leave again just as quickly. Huda has no problems in this department, only she isn't really interested in her effect on men - till Hisham comes along. But it isn't love spurring Huda on, it's her desire to teach him a lesson. Because while you can't escape your past, you can perhaps avenge it.
