"You will have great sorrow in your life, and loss," the old woman
foretold. "But you will also have great triumph and joy. And only
Allah knows in what measure."
Alexandria, Egypt. Born a humble servant girl on a cotton
plantation owned by a wealthy British family, Karima Ismail never
imagined how far her dreams would take her---nor the heartache and
passion in store. Although her doomed love for her employer's
handsome son ends in tragedy, their brief romance leaves her with a
beautiful daughter who is the joy of her life.
In time, Karima's heavenly voice brings her stardom as she becomes
one of the most admired and successful singers of her generation,
the world-famous "Nightingale" of Egypt. But all her success counts
for nothing when, in one terrible night of flame and revolution,
little Nadia suddenly disappears, leaving Karima bereft.
Given a new name and identity, Karima's lost daughter grows up
thousands of miles away. It is only when an unexpected chain of
events leads "Gaby" back to Egypt that she can begin to unravel the
mystery of her past---and discover the happiness she longs for.
Set against five decades of turbulent Middle Eastern history, from
World War II to the first Gulf War, "Nadia's Song" is a moving saga
of mothers and daughters and the unbreakable bond between them.
