While traveling to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria to interview Iraqi refugees and hear their stories, activist and advocate Kim Schultz never expected to fall in love. But that is exactly what happened. This memoir is the story of an American woman and an Iraqi man set against the backdrop of the Iraqi refugee crisis and the brewing Syrian civil war.
With roughly 65 million refugees worldwide including approximately five million Iraqis displaced from their homes since the U.S. led invasion, this urgent and often humorous memoir examines the lives of dozens of Iraqi refugees, including one named Omar, trying desperately to survive in a world blind to their plight.
Breaking assumptions, stereotypes and expectations, the author fights for Omar in a whirlwind Middle Eastern romance and subsequent three-year intercontinental, internet relationship in the shadow of a revolution.
A tale of culture, war, devastation, redemption and hope.
This isn’t supposed to be a love story.
