Publisher's Summary

On an autumn day in London, the dark secrets and troubled past of Maryam Mazar surface with tragic consequences for her pregnant daughter and her newly orphaned nephew. Racked with guilt, Maryam is compelled to leave the comfort of her suburban home and mild English husband to return to Mazareh, the remote village on Iran's north-east border where her story began. There she must face her past and the life she was forced to leave behind when her father disowned her for a sin she did not commit. This is a poetic, haunting story of secrets that lie for decades without losing their power to harm, of the pain of exile, and of the difficult joy of homecoming.

    "Great story, overall ok narrator"

    I liked the story a lot, and overall I liked the narrator, but I didn't like her use of accents. Why would Iranians talking Persian among themselves speak a seriously broken English, I assume that when depicting them as speaking English, and not speaking it very well, this makes sense, but when speaking Persian among themselves this broken language gets annoying.
