Description
Both Cassie Hugo and Margaret Brickshaw dutifully followed their soldier husbands to the U.S. embassy in Jordan, but that?s about all the women have in common. After two years, Cassie?s become an expert on the rules, but newly arrived Margaret sees only her chance to explore. So when a fender-bender sends Margaret to the local police station, Cassie reluctantly agrees to watch Margaret?s toddler son. But as the hours pass, Cassie?s boredom and frustration turn to fear- Why isn?t Margaret answering her phone, and why is it taking so long to sort out a routine accident? Snooping around Margaret?s apartment, Cassie begins to question not only her friend?s whereabouts but also her own role in Margaret?s disappearance. Written with emotional insight and stunning prose, The Confusion of Languages is a shattering portrait of a collision between two women and two worlds, as well as a poignant glimpse into the private lives of American military families living overseas.
