La princesa perdida

A real and intimate story that allows us to understand how our past makes us who we are.

Synopsis of La princesa perdida

Maha Akhtar tells us in a more intimate way, his inner search, reflections and emotions felt after knowing who his father was.

The author also talks about who her mother was, the relationship between the two and the reunion after years of separation. And how his life is marked by the character not only of his mother, but also of the woman who was by his side during his adolescence, his Aunt Hafsa. Zahra and Hafsa’s stories will take the reader through seemingly disparate settings and cultures, from New York to Beirut, and from London to New Delhi. And even further, to an inner journey that will allow us to discover how some sacrifices of the past allow us to be who we are today.
