In the late 1800s, Miriam Baalbeky emigrated from Baalbek, Lebanon. Only about thirteen years old, she was torn from everything she knew for a new life in the United States of America.
5-star review on Amazon:
This book is written beautifully. The author conveys just how Miriam (my great grandmother) must have felt leaving her home in Lebanon. And she nailed it with my Great Aunt Florence! I got a chuckle or two out of reading about her! I knew and loved these people until they passed, and Elizabeth brings out their personalities with panache. A great read for adults and young adults alike. I thank Elizabeth from my heart for writing this lovely biography. Miriam's hopes and dreams were fulfilled, and she did indeed create a family numbering as many as the sands of the seashore. So many memories.... With love, Gillian Salem
