The watercolours in this volume are an expression of the author's affection and fascination for the Middle East, painted during her many sojourns there starting in the mid-1950s and continuing to today. They are unashamedly romantic and the antithesis of the turmoil in the region. The 89 watercolours and photographs are woven together with a brief narrative that brings the context in which they were painted or photographed to the reader. The book is divided into four areas where the author painted: Lebanon, North Africa, Egypt and the Holy Land.
