This book provides a glimpse into life in Iran in 1979. It focuses on the varied beliefs of one extended family and it’s neighbors, from young to old. Daily habits, food preparation, Persian tales, and other cultural practices are a backdrop to the seeds of change leading to a revolution. The young want to change the old order while the conservative elders and religious leaders want to maintain control. An interesting read for an age old story.
