Summary

Oblivious to the invasions, massacres, and religious fanaticism that characterize the fifteenth century, a young girl falls in love with a noble Arabian tribal leader. But all eyes are on the Portuguese fleets in the Arabian Gulf, intent on securing the profitable spice trade.

Abdulaziz Al-Mahmoud weaves a tapestry of momentous historical events with stories of love, honor, and nobility, while guiding us around the medieval world of Lisbon, Cairo, Jeddah, and Istanbul.

The Holy Sail brings to life a neglected episode of history that impacted not only the region but the world for centuries to come.
