Newly married, Chris and Susanna Naylor set off for a new life in the Arab world – living first in Kuwait, then Jordan and finally Lebanon. In a region never far from the news, they discovered their expectations – of war, terrorism, desert sand dunes, men in white robes and veiled women, camels and Kalashnikovs, indeed their own reasons for being there – were to be constantly challenged.

As they found out, the reality bore little resemblance to their pre-conceptions. Postcards from the Middle East is a tale of love from one family’s experiences: a story of work, schooling, friendships, worship and shared family life, lived out in precious communities against a back drop of world-changing events and spectacular scenery.

The Naylors had never experienced such hospitality, danger, wildlife spectacles or snow before they moved to the Middle East. Their story provides a multi-coloured window on an extraordinary and rapidly changing Arab world.
