Magical Nights in Marrakesh
A business woman attempts to escape from her commitments for a while as they seem to close in around her. Her friend persuades her to accompany her to Marrakesh. The intended rest and relaxation almost imperceptibly transforms into a journey to another reality. At first, the colours, smells and lights draw her in, and then the hustle and bustle of the city with its beguiling mix of Oriental life combined with western influences increasingly fascinates her. The traveller makes friends with people who quickly become familiar, like characters in a dream, and they lead her to places and festivities where she experiences an incredible spirit, exhilaration and ecstasy. She learns to sense colours, and to perceive emotions with her body. The adventure seems to reconnect that indeterminable 'something' that she had lost during her exhausting every day routine. All this bears great sensitivity towards visual and atmospheric stimuli. A tableau of the city unfolds before the inner eye of the reader through a story narrated with great attention to detail and a passionate and knowledgeable description of Marrakesh's attractions, so much that this book could also be regarded as an ideal travel guide. The author grew up having a happy and sheltered childhood in a rural area of Germany. She didn't consider an artistic or writing profession, although writing came naturally to her. Looking back on a chequered career, she is now a leading figure of public life and enjoys writing novels to relax. This book was written after a holiday in Morocco, and it is the first part in a series of thrilling and engaging stories.
