Born into a distinguished Arab American family and raised amid privilege Lisa Halaby joined the first freshman class at Princeton to accept women graduating in with a degree in architecture and urban planning Two years later while visiting her father in Jordan she was casually introduced on the airport runway to King Hussein Widely admired in the Arab world as a voice of moderation and for his direct lineage to the prophet Muhammad Hussein would soon become the world s most eligible bachelor after the tragic death of his wife The next time they met Hussein would fall headlong in love with the athletic outspoken daughter of his longtime friend After a whirlwind secret courtship Lisa Halaby became Noor Al Hussein Queen of Jordan .
With eloquence and candor Queen Noor speaks of the obstacles she faced as a naive young bride in the royal court of rebelling against the smothering embrace of security guards and palace life and of her own successful struggle to create a working role as a humanitarian activist in a court that simply expected Noor to keep her husband happy As she gradually took on the mantle of a queen Noor s joys and challenges grew After a heartbreaking miscarriage she gave birth to four children Meshing the demands of motherhood with the commitments of her position often proved difficult but she tried to keep her young children by her side even while flying the world with her husband in his relentless quest for peace This mission would reap satisfying rewards including greater Arab unity and a peace treaty with Israel and suffer such terrible setbacks as the Gulf War and the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin .
i Leap of Faith i is a remarkable document It is the story of a young American woman who became wife and partner to an Arab monarch It provides a compelling portrait of the late King Hussein and his lifelong effort to bring peace to his war torn region and an insider s view of the growing gulf between the United States and the Arab nations It is also the refreshingly candid story of a mother coming to terms with the demands the king s role as a world statesman placed on her family s private life But most of all it is a love story the intimate account of a woman who lost her heart to a king and to his people
