?صلة بينهما وتتزوجه بعد أن تهجر السيد أحمد وتدخل أسرتهم كزوجة محترمة لابنه أما كمال، فيحب عايدة أخت صديقه لكنها ترفض الزواج منه وتتركه يكفر بالمبادئ والمثل التى لطالما آمن بها، بعد أن تعايره بفقره وتتزوج من أحد أصدقائهم الأثرياء. Real Rating 35 of fiveAbout thirty years ago I worked in the Production department of Delacorte Books for Young Readers One of the many lovely side benefits of the job was the endless supply of books that floated around the place I vacuumed the Cairo Trilogy up as it appeared in the halls outside the doors of the various production managersThis story was very very dramatic Lots happens The nastiness of Ahmad to his wife Amina which we d grown accustomed to enters a virulent phase with cold calculating musicianmistress Zanuba s appearance Barely grown son Kamal sows the seeds of his separate Westernized science and socialism based future with an act of public disobedience that I was astounded he found the courage to perform Oldest son Yasin divorced and falling into the sensual traps that a repressed hedonist isn t euipped to resist spends the book hoping and praying for an end to his hated father s tyranny be careful what you wish forAnd then there s Khadija Hers is the lot I found myself most empathetic with She s marrieda woman must beand locked in constant battle with her vicious evil mother in law She does everything she knows how to do to make the place she is betterfor herself In the end she s her father s daughterThe ending of the book is a bit too lovingly lingered over It felt cruel and prurient in eual measure So we lost that half star and I went warily to the next installment
