Amid the treachery, war, and political intrigue that follow the Prophet's death, Mu'awiya embarks on a thirty year odyssey to redeem his family's name and realize his ambition to be a leader in the new order. His modest hopes for a governorship soon seem unattainable, hampered by the lurking hatred of a former enemy determined to resurrect age-old blood feuds.
Mu'awiya's fortunes take an unexpected upturn when he falls in love with a beautiful young Bedouin woman, captured as a slave and later freed, and marries her against his father's will.

Aug 02, Kyrsten rated it liked it. I struggled with some of the information this book presented since I'm not big on geography or other cultures, but it was nonetheless a decent book.
