A Most Unlikely Journey Through the Shifting Sands of Love and Loss

A Memoir by Kyla Merwin
ISBN: 978-­0-­9910689‐0-­6

With more dumb guts than preparation, a middle-aged woman with a desk job takes a solo journey to the Middle East on the Get-There-and-Wing-it Plan. In a voice both raw and illuminating, Kyla Merwin explores the back roads, bustling bazaars, and shifting sands of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula. Kyla’s journeys take her through dramatic inner and outer landscapes – sometimes frightening, often hilarious and ultimately heartwarming – that finally bring her back home, and back to her most authentic self.
