From the dustjacket: "What happened to Maxine Miller, her husband Sherman, American advisor to the University of Tehran, and their teenage son Lloyd and daughter Marlene is told with high good humor, compassion, and concern." Author Maxine Miller received a medal from the Shah of Iran in 1961 for this book. "Tehran newspapers called her 'a one- woman peace corps,' and she was cited on the floor of the United States Senate for her work in international relations."
