BEHIND THE VEIL chronicles the story of an Australian nurse in Saudi Arabia who obviously did not fully appreciate what she was in for living and working in a culture with such extreme constraints on women. Deidre Rubenstein works the ironic and irreverent humor from the start. She never loses the hint of the author's surprise at her own naïveté in setting out on this rather mad adventure or her pride in the stubborn profession-alism that sees her through. This story is presented with the tone and intimacy of a series of letters home (although, in reality, such letters would have been thoroughly censored.)
