I was not prepared for the journey this story took me on. Trish Doller has given us a gift with this one.

I really identified with her want to experience it all, while keeping an open mind. But I also understood her frustrations of being a yo ...more
My heart is so full right now!
Dare I say this might be Trish Doller's best book yet? Yes. Yes, I will.
She has done a beautiful job of showing how complicated life can be from all aspects: family, friends, love, religion, privilege, prejudice, and cultural expectations.

If you liked ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS but want it set in Cairo and with a main character who is entirely aware of her privilege, this is your winner. This love story is packed with sweetness and tenderness and the reality of life in a foreign, politically-challenged country. Great writing, excellent setting. I will read anything Trish Doller writes.

I enjoyed very few parts of this book. I really liked when they explained certain things in Egypt. But this was WAY too political and was not the light hearted read I was anticipating.
Love the maturity of the characters and their uncompromising love for one another. I love reading about life in Cairo, their food and culture! That bit about the hanging church and scuba diving in Alexandria both sounded pretty amazing! Those are definitely places I would love to visit!
I love Caroline's relationship with her parents and how hers is with Adam as well! It's so sweet and so hopeful! It makes you want to root for them and for their relationship to stand the test of everything especi ...more
