In a world where Saudi females struggle against old traditions within an extremely conservative society, al-Batool grows up loving her Baba despite his egotistical, controlling ways, and her mother despite her inability to stand up to her father and fight for her own beliefs. Al-Batool finds refuge from her woes in her bedroom where she writes to release her emotions and ponders where life will take her next.
While on a journey into womanhood, al-Batool reflects on her life choices that include a divorce and a forbidden relationship, wrestles with the raging thoughts in her head, and clutches tightly to her principles. As she slowly begins discovering herself and defining her identity, al-Batool learns to leave her past in the past, continues to journal her thoughts, and begins wondering whether there is a man who will love her just as she is. But when she finds and then loses her soul mate, she compensates her need for love and marries another. It appears God has changed her fate. Or has He?
Dancing on Arrowheads shares the poignant tale of a Saudi woman's quest to find happiness, love, equality, and respect as she grows up within a repressed society.
