This chapter examines Ashes and Miracles: A Polish Journey, by Irena F. Karafilly. This book details the author's unexpected and deeply personal response to her visit to Poland. Her decision to write this particular book was not the result of previous planning; it was more like an impulse. The chapter shows how Karafilly's journey seems to have two ultimate goals. One is to capture the essence of Poland and its people, and the other is to uncover the nature of her own relationship with that country. While pursuing those aims, she experiences excitement and even delight, but also anxiety, unexpected sadness, and disappointment.
