Sorour Kasmaï was seventeen years old when she and her sister fled the Islamic Republic of Iran. They crossed the Turkish border, on foot and horseback, over the mountains.
After more than twenty years, the author shares the story of her ordeal. Her vivid and poetic style spin a tale of breathtaking adventure. With humor, she tells us how she was twice arrested; how she had to hide in a Tehran convent for months, waiting for another opportunity to leave; and how she finally made it to Paris.
