Behind the Veil
An Australian Nurse in Saudi ArabiaeBook - 1991
Cardiac resuscitation was often applied to a patient who was fast asleep. The hapless victim woke from a peaceful slumber to find somebody, often an infidel, jumping up and down on his chest.' Lydia Laube worked as a nurse in Saudi Arabia in a society that does not allow women to drive, vote, or speak to a man alone. Wearing head-to-toe coverings in stifling heat, and battling administrative apathy, Lydia Laube kept her sanity and got her passport back. 'Behind the Veil' is the hilarious account of an Australian woman's battle against the odds. It will keep you entertained for hours.
