Beyond the Arabian Gulf, Bahrain is a mystery. Most readers would have read about it because of its pearls and oil, but not much more. Having lived here for fifteen years, I have experienced the country, explored its momentous history, and known what had turned it into the epicenter of a conflict that would have rocked the tiny nation. Those lessons and knowledge have led to the birth of my book, "Land of Two Seas." Although a work of fiction, it has been woven around facts. Facts, that in all likelihood, you have never read about.
