The article presents information on the book "The Tears of Sheba: A Tales of Survival and Intrigue in Arabia," by Khadija Al Salami and Charles Hoots. Yemen in the 1960s was a country torn apart by civil war, as Saudi Arabia and Egypt played out a mini cold war in this poverty-stricken, isolated country on the Arabian Peninsula. Children died, women mourned and men went away to fight in bloody battles — the pawns of powerful neighbours. This book is not only the story of a courageous young woman, but also that of her country's struggle to overcome years of civil war and become again the land of milk and honey, once inhabited by the legendary Queen of Sheba.
