The country is Egypt, the city is Cairo, the neighborhood Faggalah and the period just prior to World War Two.
It is the account of a family which, in spite of the adverse happenings of the time, dared to set up a home with the aim “not to accumulate material wealth” because of the eminent upheaval of a world war but "to share love between themselves and those around them".
This book sketches the personality of Christodoulos Foteinas and his wife Evdokia as well as their two children, their son Constantinos (later the well known great Master Constantin Foteinas) and their daughter Chrysanthi. It teaches us with a smile and a hand on our heart that happiness is not given as a gift and does not depend on our social surroundings but is won by ourselves, by the life we lead and especially by our contact with other people.
