This book about two star-crossed lovers in Iran in the midst of a revolution was wonderful, gripping, and consuming. I loved the characters, the way the book jumped back and forth between past and present, and the insights as the characters learned to move forward in their lives.

I loved this! It was the Modern Mrs Darcy book club pick for January and I‘m so glad to have read it. This is a nonlinear story that goes back and forth from 1950s Iran to the US in modern day. There‘s a lot of heartbreak in the story but it was so engaging. You start out knowing the story‘s end. It caught my attention from the start and I had to know how the characters‘ lives unfolded.

When two of his American employees were held hostage in Iran, H. Ross Perot and a select group of his employees took matters into their own hands. Only Ross Perot could make this happen. His team consisted of a group of volunteers from the executive ranks of his corporation, trained by a retired Green Beret officer. To free the imprisoned Americans, they would face incalculable odds on a mission that only true heroes would have dared. . . .

EadieB ☝🏻This is a fast-paced adventure story that kept the pages turning until the very end. Only Follett could write this book and do it justice. Hard to believe that it is a true story but I do remember when it happened in 1978. This book is not to be missed. It is a marvelous rare read! 4d
ljuliel I remember reading this year ago. Quite an exciting true life story, back in the days where one guy could get things moving when he couldn‘t get help through the proper channels. 4d

#AuldLangReads Day 18: Not sure about the left one but tagged book is definitely #BasedOnATrueStory - more like a memoir, really from the author of Reading Lolita in Tehran. Excited to read both books, bought recently from Half Price Books.
