This is a multi-generational story set against Kimia‘s experience trying to get pregnant. It is told in memories and time jumps which remind me of Garcia Marquez without the magical realism. The character list in the back is helpful. All of the novel leads up to âThe EVENT,â a mysterious plot point left untold until the end. Overall, this is a novel which grapples with complexities of family/how we become who we are. I highly recommend it.
