Ashtabula to Yanbu
Kelly, a registered nurse from Ashtabula, Ohio looses her job due to downsizing in July 1987. She impulsively signs a one-year contract to work at a hospital in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia. Kelly says she wants an adventure. She gets an adventure but at stake are: her life, her reputation, her sanity, her integrity and potential financial problems.
Faced with the trials and tribulations of life in an ancient culture as it transitions to modernity, she grapples with the realities of sexual politics, spiritual conflict, pervasive corruption, all enforced by the iron fist of the royal guard and a rigid culture of patriarchy..
This is Rosemary Day's first novel. She worked in the Middle East as a nurse in the mid 80"s. Her career in health care has spanned forty years. Travel is one of her passions.
