The story describes Dalia's love for a Christian soldier, Michael, which is kept secret from her Muslim father due to conflicts in religion. Her father eventually finds out, and stabs Dalia to death in a so-called honor killing. A year after publication, it was discovered that the story was fictional, having been fabricated by Khouri.

The novel centers on the life of Dalia, a young Muslim woman living in Amman , Jordan. When she falls in love with Michael, a young Catholic major in the British Army , she is forced to keep the relationship a secret and rely on her friend Norma to act as an intermediary.

Although the lovers are only able to be alone together on a handful of occasions and Dalia's virginity remains intact, her father is so enraged when he hears of the affair from her older brother that he kills her two months after her twenty-sixth birthday.

Khouri claimed that as a result, she had been forced to seek asylum in Queensland , Australia. Questions about Khouri's story surfaced almost immediately [1].

Several readers wrote on message boards that much of the book didn't ring true, and others located 73 factual errors, anachronisms, and exaggerations e. Khouri also aroused suspicions because she spoke perfect American English , despite her claims to have never lived in the United States.

In July , a year after the book's release, Sydney Morning Herald literary editor Malcolm Knox wrote a series of articles that exposed Khouri as a complete fraud. Based on an month investigation, he concluded Khouri had fabricated the story and sold it untruthfully as a memoir. Khouri had not lived in Jordan since , and had in fact lived in Chicago for most of her life, where she was married with two children.

Her family had not heard from her since , when she abruptly left Chicago to write the book. Khouri continued to insist she'd told the truth, even when confronted with public records which proved beyond all doubt she had spent most of her life in the United States. Director Anna Broinowski tells the story of how Khouri's book became a best-seller, and then follows Khouri to Jordan. Since Khouri still insists that the story is true, Broinowski gives her the opportunity to prove that it is fully or at least partly truthful; however, the evidence Broinowski uncovers indicates not only that Khouri's book is fiction in spite of her father's claim that it was true but that Khouri had committed a number of scams even before the book.
