Sahar Delijani's Children of the Jacaranda Tree grabbed our readers' hearts and minds and didn't let go. Over half rated this strong work of fiction a 5. Here is what they say about this novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit:
Sahar Delejani has written a fantastic novel. It is gritty and emotional and hard to read due to the subject matter. At the same time it is uplifting and shows hope for a brighter future for Iran. The characters were well written and unforgettable - I will be thinking about Neda, Omid and Sheida for a long time (Susan R). What an amazing debut novel. While the story is heartbreaking in part, most of it describes the perseverance of the human spirit determined not to be destroyed even by those who will kill anyone who dares to question or speak out. Love, hope and resilience guide those who make a life in spite of the fear. A beautiful book (...
