Be prepared to be amazed and amused as you tag along with Jan as she finds herself very unexpectedly tiptoeing into Dubai in 1970, far away from Surrey where she always imagined her destiny lay. Although ill-equipped for such an about-turn in her life, with her customary grit and determination Jan embraced this opportunity in the only way she knew how - by going shopping! She was last seen going through Departures at Heathrow in the wake of her oil executive husband into the unknown, festooned with designer bags. Today's Dubai was unimaginable then but there were glimmers that maybe a more modern city was emerging slowly from centuries past and gently mingling with the current day. It was here that Jan, a young English rose, found herself gallantly attempting to make a home and a new life for herself and Mike. Read 'The Adventures of a Girl Wearing Pearls' and be entertained and amazed at just how Jan managed to rise to a challenge that was not for the faint-hearted.
