In 1855, a wealthy 24-year-old English woman, Adeline Paulina Irby, left her London home to search for her purpose in life. By a strange turn of events, she ended up in Sarajevo where she stayed and became a national hero.
In 1999, an average 22-year-old man left his home in the United States to live in the Balkans for a year. There-in the most unlikely city on the other side of the world-he not only found another Irby, but also a purpose for his life.
This creative memoir reveals that extraordinary things happen when ordinary people search for meaning and, instead, discover love.
Susret sa Miss Irby je prava priča o čovjeku koji putuje na drugi kontinent, ne znajući da će naučiti o rođak koji je jednom postao nacionalni lik nade u zemlji on sada zove dom.
