A NATIONAL BESTSELLER The trajectory of Zahra Al-Harazi's life defies expectations. In this electrifying story, which begins in a small village in Yemen and ends in a Calgary suburb, Al-Harazi describes her experience of two civil wars; her years as a young immigrant mother with little education; and her road to becoming one of Canada's most successful businesswomen. Navigating two worlds, Al-Harazi has struggled to find her own way between East and West, religion and belief, freedom and obligation, love and honour, despair and gratitude, war and war again. With deep warmth and courageous honesty, she emphasizes how it is only through gratitude and persistence that we can find happiness and the courage to build the life we want.
