Mayflower Arab: A Memoir has generated a lot of interest and excitement and we think it would be an excellent addition to your library.
Bradford has described well the enigma of coming from two persuasions. Her Dad arrived in Boston from Damascus in 1913. Her Mom was a descendant of Governor William Bradford of the Mayflower. The marriage was a secret kept from his truculent family until he told the priest.
His family were not at first pleased, but they came to love Betty, his wife, the author's Mom, who died in childbirth with her third daughter. The author was 8-1/2 years of age and her middle sister was five.
This book contains much about the newcomers and anecdotes and history of them and their descendants from Syria during the earlier parts of the 20th century. These families still attend the same church now housed in Dedham, MA: St. John's of Damascus Syrian Antiochian Orthodox church.
Bradford had a very successful book signing there in April 2013.
