One Book One Town 2014 selection, A House in the Sky,  is the dramatic and redemptive memoir of a woman whose curiosity led her to the world’s most beautiful and remote places, its most imperiled and perilous countries, and then into fifteen months of harrowing captivity—an exquisitely written story of courage, resilience, and grace.

Hartwell lived and taught in Iran and Saudi Arabia for ten years, performed community theater and traveled widely throughout Afghanistan, Egypt, Morocco, Syria, Jordan, Oman, Israel, the Gulf, Ghana, and South Africa. She has read about and studied Middle Eastern countries and cultures for decades.
