When Euan and Ruth Armstrong set off with their young daughter, Anna, to live in Bahrain, it is meant to be an experience and adventure they will cherish. But on the night they arrive, Ruth discovers the truth behind the missionary work Euan has planned and feels her world start to crumble. She starts to question her faith - in Euan, in their marriage, and in all she has held dear.

With Euan so often away, Ruth is confined to their guarded compound with her neighbours and, in particular, Noor, a troubled teenager recently returned to Bahrain to live with her father. Confronted by temptations and doubt, both Ruth and Noor must make choices that could change all of their lives forever.

Episode 10: Noor's disappearance with Anna and Euan's return from Saudi Arabia force Ruth to make a decision about her future. Bahrain or Ireland? Farid or Euan? Which will she choose?

The Meeting Point is Lucy Caldwell's second novel, a story of idealism, innocence, and the unexpected turns life can take and the dangers and chances that await us.

The readers are Laura Pyper and Yasmin Paige.

The Meeting Point was abridged by Doreen Estall and produced by Heather Larmour.
