    "One of my favorite from Sandra Dallas"

    The Persian Pickle Club was the first book I read by Sandra Dallas & I was instantly hooked. This (or any book by Sandra Dallas) is a quick and comfortable read. I love how she weaves small, day to day, things from the time setting into her work. There are some really great references to the Depression in PPC and how it affected everyday people. This book is about a quilting group, but you don't have to be a quilter to enjoy it. I loaned it to my mother and she read the book practically in one sitting since she was so drawn into the story. The characters are well written, historically accurate, and fun to read. Having given several copies of this book away as gifts I can heartily say that I recommend it as well as all of her other books.

    "Persian Pickle: Good Historical Fiction Read"
    If you could sum up Persian Pickle Club in three words, what would they be?

    Protective Loyal Friendship


    What other book might you compare Persian Pickle Club to and why?

    It reminds me of a very mild version of


    What does Ali Ahn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice has a touch of antiquity to it without sounding old, being that the narrator was a young woman in the 1930s.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The edge of my seat came when the narrator and Rita were confronted on the road.
