The Girl from the Garden

(2015)
A novel by

 
For all his wealth and success, Asher Malacouti the head of a Jewish family in the Iranian town of Kermanshah cannot have the one thing he desires above all: a son. His young wife, Rakhel, trapped in an oppressive marriage at a time when a woman's worth is measured by her fertility, is made desperate by her failure to conceive, and grows jealous and vindictive. Frustrated by his wife's inability to bear him an heir, Asher makes a fateful choice that will shatter the household.Witnessed through the memories of the family's sole surviving daughter, now an elderly woman living in Los Angeles, The Girl from the Garden unfolds the complex, tragic history of a family in a long-lost Iran of generations past. Haunting, suspenseful, and inspired by events in the author's own family, it is an evocative and poignant exploration of sacrifice, betrayal, and the indelible legacy of the families that forge us."
