This book was a good read - many times I could not put it down. Very moving, poignant tale of a girl coming of age and struggling for independence and honor amongst many odds.

The novel is engaging and wonderful from the beginning. How the young woman made her way into her trade, faced the challenges was do engaging. One of the best I have read. Read it!

Excellent book that takes place in 17th century Iran. Vivid descriptions of the locale sent me to the internet for pictures. The unnamed girl (see the afterward) perserveres through all kinds of obstacles to do that which she loves--making rugs--and become a master at the craft. Very good first novel and the author's second book just came out. I'll be starting it soon.
