Harriet and I shared breakfast on the porch one summer day and looked over her half-dozen horses dozing under the pines to the side of the house.

The author, her husband, and two daughters lived in Saudi Arabia for three years: 1972-1975. She tells the story of their life in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia as an American expatriate family by recounting activities through a collection of letters written home.
