People of Interest: Queen Noor


A few years ago I purchased Queen Noor's memoirs which has graced my TBR pile for well a few years now. Just recently I finally felt in the mood to read non-fiction so I picked it up. Though I'm not far into it I'm already intrigued by this woman. Honestly I have been for a long time.

American born, Princeton educated Queen Noor gave up her citizenship to be married to a man years her senior. She lived in a country different for her own. Converted to the Muslim fate and now finds herself the Dowager Queen of Jordan.

Don't you find that interesting? I do.

I find her sooo fascinating! Maybe I should get her memoirs too :) You'll have to let us know how the whole book is.

Yes - she is an interesting woman. I can't imagine giving up so much of who I am though.
