KMC Media Co. announces the release of an inspiring new memoir, by Kyla Merwin, titled, "Lost & Found in Egypt: A Most Unlikely Journey Through the Shifting Sands of Love and Loss." Debuting at #2 in Amazon’s Middle East-Travel section, and earning a “Hot New Releases” rating, "Lost & Found" tells the story of one woman’s journey through Egypt and Sinai on the Get-There-and-Wing-It Plan.
With more dumb guts than preparation, a middle-aged woman with a desk job takes a solo journey to the Middle East after she suffers a devastating loss. In a voice both raw and illuminating, Kyla Merwin explores the back roads, bustling bazaars, and shifting sands of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.
In the "Eat Pray Love" of the Middle East, Kyla navigates lost hotel reservations, maniacal street life, museums, monuments, and the wacky and warmhearted people she meets. These audacious travels also trigger reflections on the many tender, tempestuous and sometimes tragic love affairs that shaped her life.
Inspired by the mysticism of secret, forbidden teachings of the ancient, Gnostic Christians, Kyla Merwin traveled solo after Jihad (holy war) was declared on the West. In the juxtaposition between ancient lands and modern Egyptian culture, Kyla’s journeys take her through dramatic inner and outer landscapes – sometimes frightening, often hilarious and ultimately heartwarming. There, she finds the courage to become more than she thought she was capable of, and the seeds of her most authentic self.
For anyone who has ever quested for God, felt stuck in life, or wondered if there wasn’t more to who they think they are, “Lost & Found in Egypt” is a must-read.
