On April 2, 1986 the author was aboard a TWA flight from New York to Athens, when a terrorist bomb exploded twenty minutes before landing. Believing she was about to die, her mind went back to her childhood —flashbacks that later prompted her to write this directly and wittily narrated account of the saga, stretching back over a century, of her Greek ancestors. She recounts middle-class life in Romania, where her family had resettled, and depicts the dramatic changes resulting from the major events of the 20th c. that led the three heroines to seek new lives in Athens, Buenos Aires, and New York.
