Goodbye Istanbul: How a Young Girl from the Middle East Discovered the American Dream by Emine Loxley

Far from California, in a rural neighborhood on the outskirts of Istanbul, a young woman faced a life where marriages are still arranged and women must keep their bodies covered. It's a culture where women are subservient to men and a career is out of the question. When the outside world began to reveal itself to her, the young woman decided she wanted far more . . .

Dr. Emine Loxley's true-life account of growing up in Turkey, and eventually discovering the American dream, is a story of determination and perseverance. At twelve, she decided she wanted a different life than her mother--with that singular goal in mind she set herself out on a course that would eventually take her to the United States.

Though initially Emine knew no one, and barely spoke a word of English, over time she rose to Major in the United States Army and then, in civilian life, became the owner of a successful endodontics practice. Along the way, there were setbacks--freedom in America meant freedom to succeed, but it also meant freedom to fail. Emine takes readers on an empowering journey, as she learns her most valuable lessons through the most difficult times.
