About the book
"Sometimes it takes you all your life to take that one hard step that will bring change. When that moment finally arrives, you are empowered by emotions you never felt before. It is the scent of change you begin to inhale."
Three-year-old Maha left Istanbul with her Syrian parents and arrived in Sweden as a refugee, only to face a new set of difficulties. When Maha is attacked by a person she trusts deeply, her trauma, guilt, and shame overwhelm her, making even everyday, mundane tasks challenging for her.
For years, Maha's mental health deteriorates as she struggles with chronic depression, a battle only made harder by her arranged marriage to a manipulative, toxic man.
The birth of her second child finally breaks this destructive, vicious cycle, motivating Maha to put behind the hardships and create a new, better life for her family.
Using fear as her compass to freedom, Maha sets out to change her reality to make her dreams come true and encourage every other woman to pursue her dreams just as passionately.
Her story is an inspiration and a tribute to the courage and resilience of women all over the world. Maha is your sister, your mother, your daughter, your best friend. She's every woman who has walked this earth and carved a path for herself.
She is you.
