But, Barruq ibn Ibraham, the Silk Merchant Prince sets his wealth aside to explore the world of the human spirit and to enhance his relationship with Allah, the Maker of Man.

He leaves his silk empire to the rule of his four sons. Emotions of rivalry, jealousy, pride, ambition, love and hate abound. Soon after his departure Abdulla, the eldest who was left in charge of the business, is mysteriouly murdered.

Taim, although not the natural heir, is determined to maintain the House of Barruq and retaliate the murder of his brother with the ancient custom of blood revenge. Kalim, self-indulgent and depraved is envious of Taims strength and natural leadership ability , while Zaid, the youngest son, is loyal to Taim and pledges his allegiance to aid him in revenging his brothers death.Rivalry and intrigue soon also envelop Taims own family. Qara, a blond Turkish beauty and Taims first wife becomes immensely jealous when he falls in love with Isba, a dark beauty of the Syrian desert tribes.

When Isba becomes Taims second wife, a dark veil of virulent emotions begins to seethe within the House of Barruq. Qara is determined to rid the household of the desert princess, Isba, and cause Taim further suffering.Political turmoil develops as Taim confronts ambitous, deceptive silk merchants from Alexandria and the North African coast.

Because of his allegiance to Sultan Nur al-Din, he is drawn into rivalries between different Muslim sects and their attempts to infiltrate and destroy each other.Surprising revelations abound and the fate of those embroiled in The Silk Merchants is concealed until the final pages.While set in the 12th century, The Silk Merchants vividly reminds us that ambition, pride, love, and religious beliefs transcend generations.
