128 Degrees

The true story of how a blonde American businesswoman fled Saudi Arabia

My global travel experiences and humanitarian efforts helped set the stage for my accepting a position with “The Company” in Saudi Arabia. This book is a frank, uncut and unique perspective on living and working in the Middle East as a blonde American businesswoman.

It not only depicts the strength it took for me to live and work abroad in a repressive society, but also the strength needed to flee from an environment where my accommodations were hardly more than what one would describe as “whore housing” and where I struggled with the isolation associated with the continuous limitations of the entire compound experience.

This is my experience, my reality, my story of the two years I spent working in Saudi Arabia.  It’s an outsider’s rare glimpse into the lives of Saudi women and the damaging sociological and psychological effects of living in a “fishbowl” at 128 degrees.
