Founder of the iconic Moroccan Soup Bar, Hana?s memoir follows her childhood in Lebanon and Australia, her forced arranged marriage, her attempts to escape, and her ensuing career in women's services

Hana's memoir follows her childhood between Lebanon and Australia, her forced arranged marriage, her numerous attempts to escape, and her ensuing career in women's services. In 1998, she opened the Moroccan Soup Bar, which would quickly become an iconic Melbourne institution-founded on the radical notion that marginalised women, together in the kitchen, can effect social change.
