It''s always worth the wait.

As young Nora waits impatiently for her mother to come home from work and for her father to serve the long-simmering couscous that smells so delicious, her father tells her about his childhood in Morocco. During a famine, when Nora''s grandfather had to travel far to find work and bring food for the family, her father learned the valuable life lessons of patience, perseverance, and hope.

Folk-art illustrations capture the Moroccan culture and landscape.

An author''s note provides context for Berber culture, language, and traditions.
