The author vividly describes her first encounter with a new culture when, at the age of twelve, she and her mother go for an extended visit to Lebanon. Noor is introduced to the rest of her family, and during that time, attends school in Beirut. This gives her the opportunity not only to study Arabic but also to build relationships and gain an understanding for the culture and heritage she has only heard about.

Noor's personal story begins to take shape ten years later after she and her parents leave America permanently to live in the land of their roots. Her many humorous encounters with the Lebanese reveal the wit, vitality, and vigor of a people too often caught in the middle of other people's wars. As she walks you through her very moving and thrilling story, she also reveals the things that life but most of all, God has taught her. Noor's earnest hope is that her journey will inspire many to dispel all fear and take a step of faith toward fulfilling their dreams regardless of the circumstances.

For with God, all things are possible.
