#nofemmeber #burningbride

Here‘s a book I read a few years ago that fits. Becoming a #bride in a place that‘s #burning hot! Marguerite is a NZ woman who married a Bedouin man and lived in a cave raising a family. It‘s a fascinating book about learning to fit into a new culture/community, managing life away from modern conveniences, with some adventures before chronicling how their community was forced away from their traditional caves.

Cinfhen This sounds super fascinating... 8mo
Centique @Cinfhen it was - and a very easy read. I‘ll keep my eye out for a copy of it. I doubt you can find it outside of NZ or Aus! 😘 8mo
Cinfhen Ha!!! I was thinking finding this book might not be that easy 😘 8mo
