About the Book

The trajectory of Zahra Al-Harazi’s life defies expectation. In this electrifying memoir that travels from a small village in Yemen to a small town in Minnesota to a Calgary suburb, Zahra describes surviving two civil wars, the isolation of her marriage at seventeen to a virtual stranger, her years as a young, stay-at-home immigrant mother with little education and how she became one of Canada’s most successful businesswomen.

Navigating two worlds, Zahra has struggled to find her own way between religion and belief, freedom and meeting expectations, East and West, family and desire, love and honour, despair and gratitude, war and war again, and being a good mother and a bad one. With warmth and courageous honesty, Zahra recounts how it was only through gratitude, persistance and breaking other people’s rules that she found the strength to live by her own, find happiness and build the life she wanted.
