A riveting first novel by Baheya Zeitoun about the complexities of values and choices while living in a transnational world.
"She strolled down the boulevard, with a melancholic expression on her face and the weight of the world on her back..." Sarah's struggles with cancer and the challenges of her life in Paris cause her to embark on a journey of recollection and reflection. A tapestry of an adolescence in Cairo, professional achievements in the family-run jewelry business, and the impact of fraught relationships with loved ones. Does she make amends? Can she change the course of her life? Will she return to Cairo or stay in Paris?
