Helle Amin seemed to have the perfect life, living on the tropical island of Bali with her husband and four children. But one day in 2001, the seemingly idyllic existence was shattered and Helle's life changed forever. Returning home from a shopping trip one evening, Helle was distraught to find that her children were gone - her Saudi Arabian husband had taken them away to live in his home country. With her children thousands of miles away and un-contactable, Helle drew upon her remarkable courage and the help of her good friends, and embarked on a remarkable journey that would take her across the desert to find her beloved boys. It was a journey that was to be filled with drama, danger, excitement and sorrow and one on which some women mght have had to give up - but not Helle. Determined to be reunited properly with her children but reduced to cathcing glimpses of her children as they came and went from school in Jeddah she fought to be able to see her boys from just one day a week. In the end, after a long struggle and remarkable twists and turns, Helle was reunited forever with her boys. This fascinating and gripping story cannot fail to touch any reader's heart and is packed with adventure, heartache and joy.
