A Western woman finds love and struggle with her Libyan husband in a memoir of marriage across a cultural divide: "A sweet and rewarding journey of a book" (Kirkus Reviews).Fifteen years ago, Krista Bremer, a California-bred feminist, surfer, and aspiring journalist, met and fell in love with a man from a very different world.
