In 2005, teacher Theresa Kubasak and retired publisher Gabe Huck moved to Syria with the hope of making a positive contribution for the many Iraqis who sought refuge there after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. In 2007, they established the Iraqi Student Project, which in five years successfully prepared 60 young Iraqi refugees for admission to U.S. colleges. This is Kubasak and Huck's account of the years they spent in four different neighbourhoods in Damascus. It describes the many deep relationships they built there, with Syrians and with Iraqi and Palestinian refugees. The book paints a uniquely intimate picture of daily life in the heritage-rich country of Syria in the period before and just after the 2011 eruption of unrest there. It contains stunning photos, hand-drawn maps, and other rich supplemental content.
