Meetra's life in Iran is all that she could want. Her husband, Omar, is a high-ranking official with the Shah's army, they have a beautiful son, and she lives a luxurious life. But after her husband's tragic death in the midst of the Iranian Revolution in 1979, Meetra suddenly becomes a threat to the new regime.
To protect herself and her young son, Meetra flees her home, forced to trust those who could be the enemy. Her perilous flight takes her across the border into Pakistan and eventually, to the unfamiliar shores of America.
After leaving all she knows behind, Meetra finds herself living in Michigan where she discovers solace in a sewing circle with other refugee women from many different countries. Even with the chaos she escaped, Meetra is hard pressed to answer the question, "What brought you here?"
Rich with multicultural detail, emotion, and suspense, Finding Refuge is a heartening portrait of a mother's love for her son and of one woman's unyielding spirit.
