The memoir is the author’s early life in Cairo, Montreal, Boston and Manhattan, from 1940 to 1963. It is a riveting story of an Armenian girl born and raised in Egypt, her trials and tribulations, her anxieties and desires. She describes her life in Cairo through WWII and two Middle Eastern wars. In her boy-crazy youth, she yearns for a fairy tale life of marrying the man of her dreams.

This is the story of a young rebel, trapped in age-old cultural stereotypes, who escaped the life planned for her. The story of a young woman creating her own word and achieving an impossible dream.
