Praise for The Moon Daughter

“Brilliantly portrayed with vivid imagery, intriguing characters, and lyrical prose, THE MOON DAUGHTER reveals rare insights from both mother and daughter in their search for love, compassion, and justice. At once tragic and triumphant, this spellbinding drama is riveting through the final page.”
– Marjorie Hart, author of Summer at Tiffany, a New York Times bestseller

“In THE MOON DAUGHTER, Zohreh Ghahremani takes us again to her native Iran where we discover that no matter the country or the culture, heartbreak and joy, loyalty and betrayal, love and simple kindness are common denominators in human relationships. Both new and returning readers of Ghahremani’s work are promised another novel that combines lyrical prose, exotic setting, and compelling story.”
-Judy Reeves, author of A Writer’s Book of Days

“THE MOON DAUGHTER captures the bittersweet yet triumphant story of an Iranian mother and daughter who immigrate to the United States in the 1970s. In this delicately wrought novel, each woman struggles against the hand that fate has dealt her with intelligence and strength, illuminating the paths of two very different generations of Iranian Americans. But rather than settle for easy answers, this skillfully-woven tale lays bare the emotional truths at the core of the immigrant experience: the complications afforded by loss, the changes of heart that make us all human, and the power of love to bind us together across continents and generations. THE MOON DAUGHTER is captivating, heart-felt, and deeply meaningful.”
-Anita Amirrezvani, author of The Blood of Flowers & Equal of the Sun
