Book

Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 3.25.18 PM“What would you do if you could do anything in the world?”  Theresa Turner’s son asked. Without a moment’s hesitation, she replied that she would teach overseas again. Eight weeks later, she found herself in northern Iraq, spending weekends with a widow’s family in a local village. The Kurdish Bike is a fictionalized narrative of her challenges adapting to a paternalistic society, where women die in “honor killings” and mutilation is commonplace — an unforgettable story told with compassion, humor and grace.
