  • Truly mesmerising

    Scotland on Sunday
  • A beautifully recounted homage to her mother's life and struggles.

  • Richly detailed ... An eye-opening account that disturbs with its depiction of women in Iranian society, but warms the heart in its portrayal of their gritty endurance.

  • Deeply affecting...How can you not feel for these women? Once you read this book, you will see Iran and Iranians with new eyes. A brilliant debut.

    Anita Amirrezvani, author of The Blood of Flowers
  • 'an astonishing tale of two cultures miles apart yet inextricably linked through the daughter or a woman who had the courage to stand up and be counted.'
