ABOUT B.R. Keegstra

B.R. Keegstra
B.R. Keegstra studied medicine in Chicago. She has traveled extensively and done medical work in the Middle East and Africa. She lives in Northern California with her family, two cats, a dog and a giant goldfish.


Her known world was shattered by a Soviet bullet. Only six years old, Terez was already learning about life’s mean streaks. But being an orphan didn’t stop her. At seventeen she was one of the youngest women in a 1960’s Chicago medical school, where love, racism and loss were thrust upon her, creating a distaste for life in her adopted country. Fleeing to a clinic in rural Afghanistan, she embraces romance once more, only to have it stolen from her a second time, along with her son. Grief and guilt envelop her in a dark shroud and to emerge from this she must fight her own demons as well as the twin devils of war and terrorism. Teri’s journey will resonate with anyone who has had to find resilience and fortitude to overcome obstacles in life and with anyone who is opposed to war and terrorism.
