A village girl’s dreams of marriage end on the death of her father. Cast on the mercy of relatives in fabled Isfahan, she and her mother are reduced to servitude until she reveals a talent for designing carpets – an invaluable skill. Hope is short-lived, for a disastrous, headstrong act results in the girl’s disgrace. Caught between forces she can barely comprehend, she faces a life lived at the whim of others – unless she is prepared to risk everything and choose a future based on her own strength and will.
A beautiful, rich novel, well-researched, a coming-of-age story. I loved to read about the carpet industry in 17th-century Isfahan - and I'd like to see the carpets described in the novel. What's great too are the descriptions of Iranian culture - food, clothes, life styles (of the rich and the poor), etc. - and the characterisations. Only the ending was a bit rushed.
