In the Kingdom of Men by Kim Barnes
Idaho author Kim Barnes gives us the story of Ginny, an American who
travels with her husband to the Arab oil fields. Set in the late
sixties, the book gives a very detailed and personal account of Ginny's
struggles with loneliness, faith, sexism, and racial inequality. Greed
is also a huge theme in this book. I really like Barnes' style and
description of inner conflict that Ginny experiences. Worth a look if
you like stories about the inner life of a woman.
