Kisses from a Distance is an engaging, true story that examines the Lebanese ethos through the lives and travails of three families before and after immigration to America.
The tale begins in 1895 at a remote convent in the mountains of Lebanon where a young postulant, the author’s grandmother, is abducted and given into an unanticipated, and unwanted, marriage.
