Truly Rich and Haunting
This audiobook has two excellent narrators, which beautifully reflected the thoughts and experiences of the mother and daughter of the story. I was transported to the dusty, tiny village in Iran through the descriptive and skilled writing of the author, as well as the streets of London. This was a very good story, and indeed it was haunting as well as compelling. I love how the story unfolded, as we learned more and more about Maryann’s past. I grieved with Sara as she tried to heal from her personal tragedy, and then enjoyed seeing Iran through her eyes. My heart broke for her father as he tried to cope with life as it was left to him. I highly recommend this book!

Entertaining and Educational
This book takes place in England and Iran--the latter of which was totally foreign to me. I appreciated the separate reading voices--both the young British daughter and the heavy accent of her Iranian-born mother. The touch of brief interludes of appropriate music helped to transition the reader from one country and person to the other. I loved getting acquainted with the various customs and people in a land so far away.
