it was amazing

I truly loved reading Butterfly Stitching. Shermin Kruse’s writing is poetic. Her words are just so visual: you can’t help but picture a vivid image when reading her writing. She truly has a talent with words. I found myself reading slowly, so much slower than I usually read. I felt like I just needed more time to absorb everything Kruse was saying.

While Butterfly Stitching is a work of fiction, it was “inspired by the true stories of Iranian women”. While I’m not ignorant of the way women live in other parts of the world, after reading this I feel like I have more of an understanding. I feel like I’ve heard this story from a friend. Like a good friend has shared her family history with me. Sahar and Samira, and their story, is just so real to me now.

I highly recommend reading Butterfly Stitching. Truly.
