Years ago, Salma violated the laws of her Bedouin village by becoming pregnant out of wedlock; she was imprisoned to protect her from the villagers’ wrath as they sought to restore their honour and her baby girl was taken from her.
    Now, escaped from her prison and living in exile in England, Salma tries to forge a new life for herself. But she is torn between the permissive, often racist Western culture and her tribal Muslim upbringing. Salma’s past and the cries of her lost child still haunt her, so risking everything, she returns to her village in a desperate attempt to save her daughter.
    Moving with lyrical grace between the Levant’s olive groves and England’s rain-slicked streets, The Cry of the Dove is a searing novel of love, violated honour and a woman’s courage. Fadia Faqir depicts, with passion and humour, the reality of life for women living under oppression—whatever form that oppression might take.
