Leap of Faith Queen Noor Hyperion Books 2003-10 544
A #1 New York Times Bestseller This is the story of a young American woman who became wife and partner to an Arab monarch. It provides a compelling portrait of the late King Hussein and his lifelong effort to bring peace to his war torn region, and an insider's view of the growing gulf between the United States and the Arab nations. It is also the refreshingly candid story of a mother coming to terms with the demands the king's role as a world statesman placed on her family's private life. But most of all it is a love story -- the intimate account of a woman who lost her heart to a king, and to his people.
