The story of a remarkable woman

A reader writes:

I wish to thank you so much for our copy of  Memories of Eden. I cannot tell you how moved I was by the story of Baghdad in its day and how significant a history lesson this has been for me. It has given me a greater understanding and sympathy for the struggles in present day Iraq. How sad it has changed so drastically in less than a century.

I fell in love with your Mom! Her stories evoked laughter and sadness, and were full of hope, optimism and determination. She was a remarkable woman. I especially liked her descriptions of the food and markets and found the pictures really brought your Mom’s story to life. How fortunate you are to have such a detailed personal history of your family. This is a true treasure!

Thank you for sharing her story with the world.
