Kismet: From the Joy of Romance to the Agony of Alzheimer’s

A Powerful Memoir of Love, Loss, and Self Discovery, set against the Drama of Crucial World Events!

Liz was a young, naive California girl when she met and married Tony, a dashing Dutch-American international businessman. They met and married in Tehran, and for the next two decades they lived a glamorous life of travel and adventure. The couple lived in Iran under the Shah, cosmopolitan Morocco, Apartheid South Africa, and later placid Iowa. Then, as the years passed, the tale turned for the worse, as Tony declined into Alzheimer’s dementia, and Liz took on the role of primary caregiver and head of the family. At home in Colorado, Liz reflects that her life and marriage have been an adventure in self-discovery.
