The Salt RoadPaperback - 2011
When Isabelle's estranged archeologist father dies, leaving her some papers and a mysterious African amulet, she embarks on a trip to Morocco to discover how the amulet came into her father's possession. When the amulet is damaged and Isabelle almost killed in an accident, she fears her curiosity has got the better of her. But Taib, her rescuer, knows the dunes and their peoples, and offers to help uncover the amulet's extraordinary history, involving Tin Hinan who made a legendary crossing of the desert, and her beautiful descendant Mariarta. Across years the stories of Isabelle and Taib, Mariarta and her lover, become entangled with that of the lost amulet. It is a tale of souls wounded by history and of love blossoming on barren ground. From the author of "The Tenth Gift".
