The Pearl Thief

Little is known about the personal lives of Bahrain's pearl divers of yesteryear.  All we have is old photographs and tales passed down through generations. Bahraini author Noor Al Noaimi writes a fictional account of one man's quest to escape poverty by joining the ranks of pearl divers who risked their lives in search of the elusive Bahraini pearl.

Noor Al Noaimi is a member of the Bahrain Writers' Circle and a regular contributor to many local and international magazines.  The Pearl Thief is her first published book.
