Publisher's Summary

Knowing she could never be happy in Iran, Tamila Soroush took her mother’s advice to “Go and wake up your luck” and joined her sister in the United States, where amazing freedoms awaited her. Now, after a spur-of-the-moment exchange of “I do’s” with her true love, Ike Hanson, Tami is eager to start her new life.
But not everyone is pleased with their marriage, and Tami’s happily-ever-after is no sure thing. As tensions escalate, Tami’s sense of self-worth takes a beating, especially when her earlier attempts to find a husband on a visitor’s visa return to haunt her. And there are her parents, stuck behind in a country that betrayed them. How can she be happy when they are not?Tami is beginning to understand that freedom is not for the faint of heart. With so much stacked against her, and her immigration interview looming, she wonders whether she’s got the right stuff when it comes to love, American-style. Maybe her luck is running out... or maybe she’ll step up to the plate and claim her American dream.

Wow, what a book this turned out to be!

This book is such an incredible read! The narrator is authentic as well. Her take on the accents involved within the culture is so on point I couldn't believe it. All of the characters have different voice inflections instead of having the same accent across all of the Iranian characters.

This story is one of love across 2 countries, and the main character is just a jewel to listen to! She is so refreshing! I hope that the author will continue to write about Tamila and Ike, because the way that the book ended left SO much to say in the future!

Get this book! You will be so pleasantly surprised and so glad that you did!

weak under-resached romance

This was one pitiful book supposedly written from the point of view of an Iranian, or should I say, as the author coyly states, Persian woman It was repetitive, the characters one-dimensional, and should have been brutally edited. i can only say that i am glad to note that apparently the only contact the writer had with Iranian people was through three "relatives" otherwise I would be very sad for Iranian womanhood.
