Published: 3 December 2015

Oblivious to the invasions, massacres and religious fanaticism that characterise the 15th century, a young girl falls in love with a noble Arabian tribal leader. But all eyes are on the encroaching Portuguese fleets in the Arabian Gulf, who will stop at nothing to secure the lucrative spice trade. Soon, all are embroiled in a battle to control a trade that would lead to the rise and fall of empires.

Abdulaziz Al Mahmoud weaves a tapestry of momentous historical events with stories of love, honour and nobility, while guiding us around the medieval world of Lisbon, Cairo, Jeddah and Istanbul. The Holy Sail brings to life a neglected episode of history that impacted not only the region but also the world for centuries to come.
