Glimpses of the Middle East

Moberly, Patience

Arriving in Qatar in 1959 as the ambassador's wife, who 'knows everything, hears secrets, witnesses duplicity, but is not allowed to express an opinion', Patricia Moberly, at the age of 93, finally speaks plainly.
She shares her observations on the lives of women at the time, tradition and change, as well as the Intensive Care Unit she and her husband established in Gaza, and other medical aid programs.
