Its a bit of a wild guess but wondered if anyone could help?

Ive just come back from a week in Dubai and whilst there I was looking at a book in a museum shop. I went to pick it up and someone got there before me and went to pay for it so I couldn't get it. I have no idea of the title even but it was something to do with either a Mother or a Nanny and I think it was in Dubai or it might have been Saudi. It had black writing and I think the cover was a sort of sunset.

I realise its probably the most vague description ever but I wondered if anyone had seen or heard of it?

Could it be Sharaf by Raj Kumar? I have looked at the database of Saudi/Dubai books and that is the closest to your description

Between Two Rivers by Dorothy al Khafaji?

It is set in Iraq but otherwise fits the criteria.
