Barbara Marlowe was in her 50s when she saw the photo that changed her life. It was a photo of 4-year-old Teeba Furat Fadhil, whose face, head and hands had been severely burned during a roadside bombing in the Diyala Province of Iraq when she was just 19 months old. With a powerful faith and determination, Barbara overcame obstacle after obstacle to bring Teeba to the United States for medical treatments—and to ultimately offer a home. 

A Brave Face includes material written by Teeba and her Iraqi mother, Dunia, at key moments in their stories. The book also explores the connection forged between Barbara and Dunia over the past decade—a connection that has survived the strife of war and the horrors of Al-Qaeda and ISIS. In the end, this inspirational story highlights the power of love to reach across both cultures and continents.
