Reading Delijani's novel is like peeping into the living rooms of families torn apart by counter-revolution measures in Iran. The intensely intimate moments she depicts and the highly personal struggles she focuses on show life under the regime through the eyes of those most devastated by its vicious tyranny. At the very start my heart was torn to pieces by the woman giving birth in prison-the very act of birth manipulated to be one more form of torture and her child relinquished to her own parents to raise. The struggles of three generations fill the pages, trying to hold their lives together, to find and sustain love, to support their families, to heal from unspeakable wounds, and to live with unthinkable absences. It is a deeply moving story of life, death, persecution, and survival. -- Nichole McCown, Bookshop Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA
