And then there's Samira, the Bennis's devoted housekeeper for many decades. Hers is the biggest secret of all - one that strikes at the very heart of the family.

As things begin to unravel behind the ancient walls of the medina, the four women are soon caught in a web of lies, clandestine deals and shocking confessions . . .Morocco- a captivating country of honor and tradition. And, for these four women, a land of secrets and revelations.
