“Mehran’s novel delights the senses on each web page. the tale pulses with existence as 3 Iranian sisters fight to make experience of concerns of the guts and the spirit.”
–Elizabeth Cox, writer of The sluggish Moon
More than a 12 months has handed when you consider that Marjan, Bahar, and Layla, the gorgeous Iranian Aminpour sisters, sought shelter within the old fashioned Irish city of Ballinacroagh. commencing the beguiling Babylon Café, they charmed the locals with their hot hearts and delectable Persian food, bringing a saffron-scented spice to the once-sleepy village.
But whilst a tender girl with a gloomy mystery actually washes up on Clew Bay seashore, the sisters’ global is once more became the other way up. With faded dermis and webbed palms, the woman is otherworldly, yet her wounds inform a extra earthly (and graver) story–one that sends the stern Catholic city into an uproar. The Aminpours rally round the newcomer, yet each one sister should also take care of her personal transformation–Marjan assessments her emotions for romance with a rushing author, Bahar takes on a brand new non secular dedication with assistance from Father Mahoney, and Layla matures right into a younger lady while she and her boyfriend, Malachy, step up their sizzling and heavy courting.
Filled with mouthwatering recipes and spell binding information of existence in eire, Rosewater and Soda Bread is infused with a lyrical heat that radiates from the Aminpour kin and their big-hearted Italian landlady, Estelle, to the full of Ballinacroagh–and the realm beyond.
