Although I had reservations when I started reading this for English class, I soon found myself swept away by the vivid story pieced together by Gina Nahai. The perfect balance and blend of fantasy and history made the book an fast, smooth read. Through the perspectives of a child and a woman, the reader is able to see Iran and LA in very different ways but with a connecting theme of magic, faith, and one's destiny. This is an absolutly wonderful read and I highly recommend it to anyone.

From the opening line, to the last word you will be mesmerized. The author has greated a seamless blend of magical tales and folklore to the realities of a woman's, well, family's struggles with life in Iran. You will never want this book to end and you will be telling everyone you know how terrific it is. Truly a must read.

the most beautiful, mystical, inspirational book I have read in ages. Read it, enjoy it, lend it to a friend and then read it again!

This novel tries to have a story of redemption, but the characters spend so much time hiding their passions that they become flat and dead, even when pursuing life and love.

Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Nahai takes you on a surreal journey through the pre-WWII Jewish ghettos of Iran clear up to modern day Los Angelas. What she portrays as maybe some not so realistic images hits home when understood from a childs point of view. The telling of this story is painful yet forgiving, sorrowful yet full of joy, magical, but at the same time full of reality when looked at from the Jewish prospective. What a lesson on how far reaching our choices are. Not only do they affect us, but they affect those we love as well. A wonderful work! I cried all the way through.
