In the Land of Invisible Women by Qanta Ahmed

Christine over at She Reads Books recently reviewed this book and it sounds fascinating. The basic plot summary that she provided is as follows:

"In the Land of Invisible Women is the memoir of a British-born, American-trained female Muslim doctor, Qanta Ahmed. After being unexpectedly denied a Visa to stay un the United States, she decided — on a whim — to continue her practise in Saudi Arabia. The book is her account of the years that she spent there, before eventually moving back home to the States, after 9/11. Lots of things are covered, from her medical practise, to aspects of Saudi culture, to the growth of her faith."

This sounds like one of those books that is definitely up my alley. I'll be adding it to my TBR pile and would be interested in hearing what others have thought about it -- so if you have read it, please comment and let me know what you thought!
