Overview
This is a story of dreamers who start from scratch with hope of living a better life. Darya has learned from her immigrant mother that once we are finally able to truly envision our dreams, they start to gain power. When an older Darya decides to say goodbye to everything she has accomplished in her past and restart her life, she realizes that to achieve her dreams, she needs to help others reach their dreams too. The more she helps others, the lighter she feels – and the lighter she feels, the higher she goes. The question then becomes, who is helping who? This is an unforgettable book that explores the cyclical life journey that is common to anyone who has, willingly or unwillingly, decided to restart their life, take a risk, and experience the unknown.

This is an unforgettable book that explores the cyclical life journey that is common to anyone who has, willingly or unwillingly, decided to restart their life, take a risk, and experience the unknown. "Big Dreams, Small Suitcase" is an unforgettable story that shares how life journeys are either linear or circular. The linear ones start from a point and gradually move straight forward, until they reach the end. The circular ones start from a point as well, but they move within a roundabout instead, eventually reaching their starting point once more and restarting their journey again.
