Interesting but somewhat simplistic story about an Arab prince who doesn't know he was born a Jew. I recommend it as an entertaining read for an airplane journey or other situation where you have to sit and wait for a long time. It will keep your interest and make the time pass more quickly.

I'm not a Romance fan, so I didn't bother to read the book.
