Trek Publishing released its sixth book in early July of 2016. Many of the books have also been released in an audio format, or on DVD.
With Love, From Iraq: A true story of hope, perseverance, and becoming Canadian was released on July 8 of 2016, and is a perfect Canada Day read. Watch for Canada Day celebrations any time of year. Our new slogan is Every Day is Canada Day for New Canadians. Maysoon and Wajid are young entrepreneurs who immigrated to Canada in 2002. They have become happy, contributing Canadians, who raised their children in their family business. Author, Maureen Haddock, begins the story with their births in Baghdad, Iraq and tells of their meeting in 1992, their deep and growing love for each other, and their escape to Turkey, where they were engaged, before being caught and returned to Iraq. They were married in 1994, in Baghdad, and escaped, again, to Turkey, with their three small children, in 1999. The book relates how they spent 2 years and 4 months in Turkey, in limbo, waiting to be cleared to move to Canada. Their paperwork had been lost.
