A historically-rich and intricate memoir spanning the first half of Ulla Morris-Carter’s exciting life, from World War 2 Germany to Cairo, Egypt as a young woman in the 1950s, to Beirut, Lebanon as a young wife of a foreign correspondent and mother of three in the 1960’s, through to surviving civil wars and evacuations and upheavals in the 1970s.
Ulla Morris-Carter vividly recounts the early-to-mid years of her exciting life, from growing up as a young child in WW2 Germany to living in the Middle East in the 50s through the 70s. Spanning wars, continents, family upheavals and losses she details her daring move at age 21 from Düsseldorf to the mysterious Nile city of Cairo, Egypt. She recounts her marriage to a prominent American foreign correspondent, followed by the birth of their three daughters, the joys and difficulties of holding the family together through cascading revolutions and wars, and the tragedy that forced the family’s move to America.
