Dreams of trespass is a memoir of a Moroccan woman's childhood. It describes what it was like growing up in a Muslim household with a harem, a special woman's quarter. She presents some delightful vignettes of growing up, especially her playing with a male cousin. The book also presents the mind views of the different women, both in the city of Fez and on a rural farm in Morocco. Some wanted to be free, others accepted the traditional fate of women.
