While the wicked environment around Aisha generates evil, corruption and injustice, she is determined to survive and succeed. Aisha is a novel of survival and is woven with historical events, romance and passion. The title character is a shrewd peasant girl who escapes her poverty-stricken village to rise as one of the most celebrated dancers of her time. This fact-based historical novel covers the chaotic period of 1939 to 1953, and has a universal appeal.

Aisha unfolds against an exotic and contemporary historical background, with the heroine involved in riots, political treachery, and sweeping events in Egypt. The defining moment for Aisha is when, after years of self-absorption with her own security, she comes across information that the man she loves, as well as some revolutionary officers, are being set up by the police. If caught, they will be shot as traitors. Aisha combines the epic of Gone With the Wind and the romanticism of Casablanca.
