Reader Review of Kismet:

Told with courage and clarity, Kismet relates how the author found unexpected depths of love and strength to deal with an impossible situation. But it's not simply a tale of youthful idealistic glamour versus age and degeneration. I confess that from reading the marketing blurbs, I expected something rather superficial: a fabulously beautiful couple travels the globe, then the husband comes down with Alzheimer's disease and the loving wife cares for him in his last days. But this tale is so much more than that!

Liz begins her story with youthful dreams that seem too good to be true. As she skillfully reveals undercurrents of shifting traditions and political upheaval, I experienced all the textures and smells and colors of each culture, impressed by her ability to plunge into unknown territory and make herself a new home over and over. At its heart, this is a profound love story. Liz chronicles exactly what is meant by: "in sickness and in health."  Liz shares poignant details that bring both laughter and tears as she conveys a unique depth of wisdom.

Do yourself a favor: don't stop before you finish this amazing book, because there's a zinger at the end that puts the rest of the book into a shocking new perspective.
