really liked it

The question of fate - is it predetermined or is it of our own making is the subject of many books. This book took an interesting twist on the idea by using many different characters to examine this idea.

Following one main character and the people who have come before her and are facets of her existence made for a good read. The author did a very good job weaving the mystical with the historical with what life was like in a Jewish ghetto in Tehran from the late 19 century through the Islamic revolution.

While the ending seems a bit rushed and unfulfilled, it does not diminish the journey that has preceded it. While I didn’t need a literal “where is everyone now” ending, it did seem to just stop short of finding true resolution – leaving too much up to the reader to interpret.
