This book is about the determined story of Angelina and her family and the hardships they faced while leaving Iran and reaching freedom in the United States. Growing up amid the stable government of the Shah of Iran then living through the political and cultural turmoil of the Iranian revolution that began in 1975, Angelina managed to complete her bachelor of arts in English and became a teacher. But it was fraught with hardship. As a single parent, she had to protect her children from an increasingly hostile government yet had to continue seeking ways to escape the harsh environment. Finally reaching the United States, the ugly head of discrimination in higher education in California universities revealed itself—another chapter in her struggle to improve herself and her children. The story shows how she dealt with this discrimination and the outcome it eventually brought.
