I love a book that teaches me something about another land, another culture or another time. This book certainly delivered on all counts for me, granted a lot of the story is set in the present day. If you're sitting on the fence about buying it, hop off and get it. It really is worth it.
The only thing whihc i found slightly negative is that Maryam seems to have lived/has lived, most of her adult life in memory of her childhood with not a great deal of feeling for her current situation. That and the fact she found an extremely tolerable and understanding husband!!
However would very much recommend this book as it is a great read.

This is a very good novel but does fall away towards the end, appearing to attempt to do too much or complete explanations as to why someone is the way they are. Read morePublished 13 months ago by "Belgo Geordie"
