Reader Review of Kismet:

An absorbing, beautifully written story of a marriage and of a wife’s struggle to understand and cope with her husband’s changing personality as Alzheimer’s gradually eroded his personality. A long journey, including colorful insights of Iran, Morocco and South Africa, and other places where Van Ingen's family lived for twenty years, and of Iowa, where they settled upon their return to the U.S.
