A true story of the life of British explorer and adventurer, Gertrude Bell, QUEEN OF THE DESERT chronicles her journeys of love and loss in the Middle East during the early 20th century. A curious and adventurous young woman eager to explore the world outside of England, Gertrude Bell goes to the British embassy in Tehran where she quickly falls in love with a secretary of the embassy, Henry Cadogan. This sparks the beginning of a life-long adventure among the beautiful but misunderstood peoples and cultures of the Middle East.
