|Plot Summary of Single in Saudi|
|"It was the late seventies, a time of drugs, sex and rock and roll for some swinging singles in America. When a swinging single American blonde nurse took a job in Saudi Arabia, she found that it was also happening in Saudi Arabia-just behind walled compounds and houses.
It was also a difficult adjustment for an American feminist to conform to the rules of such a male doninated society and she railed against the rules and managed to break most of them to live a "normal" life. She took chances and made the most of her two years living in this outwardly oppressive society. "
