That‘s the sad thing about poets. They write beautiful words and then people get killed.

An orphaned girl is at the centre of this family saga set against the changing political backdrop of Iran from the 1950s to the 70s. While the story sometimes verged on too much drama for my taste, it held my attention and I very much appreciated Hozar‘s female gaze on a large cast of characters from a variety of class backgrounds and religious beliefs. #Audiobook narrated by Neeky Dalir. #CanadianAuthor
