Moon Over the Marrakech
When Nazneen Sheikh and her psychiatrist husband Cesar honeymooned in Marrakech, she developed a spiritual connection to the city. Impressions of the colours, the people, and the roses lingered with her long after they returned home to Toronto. Their marriage seemed perfect until Cesar disappeared. She learned he was a manic-depressive who had suffered a breakdown. Everything fell apart: his practice, their marriage, and her life. After restoring her independence, Nazneen returned to Marrakech to write. Much remained familiar, especially Khadim, the tourist guide from her honeymoon. His spirituality seduced her, and they were soon wed. Little did she know that he, like Cesar, had a hidden side of his own. Spanning sixteen years and two continents, Moon Over Marrakech traces one woman?s relationships with secretive, exotic, and perilous men.
