The story of Mildred Post Rippey. Mildred broke all the stereotypes. She was a Presbyterian all her life, yet, when her daughter married Mohammed Imady, a Syrian student at NYU, Mildred welcomed him into the family. She made her first trip abroad at sixty to visit her daughter in Damascus and came to love Damascus and call it her 'second home.' Her life was a brave struggle to overcome the fears of her childhood and the failure of her marriage; to meet the challenge of raising three daughters alone while holding down two jobs and to fulfill her longing to get a college education
