Victoria Yousefi, Author documents her life in Iran, during the turbulent 1980's when the majority of demonstrators, eventually forced the Shah and his Royal family to exile the country. Imagine what it was like when the war happened between Iraq and Iran. How would a mother handle calming her children down, when Iraqi bombs and missiles were exploding everywhere, with tremendous force and no hope to survive for the next day. Her book dramatically describes how women were punished by being whipped and stoned to death, for insignificant violations by the new regime.

Upon settling in America, her youngest son Omid was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a bone marrow failure blood disease. This amazing story will capture your attention with all the action and tender love story. You will be inspired with her strong courage, faith and hope.
