The Girl From the Garden

The Girl from the Garden: A Novel - Parnaz Foroutan

A book based on the author's  family history about a woman in early 20th century Iran who can't bear children and basically goes crazy when her husband moves a new woman into his house as a second wife in order to have kids.


Trying to remember why I picked up this book in the first place. Did I think it wouldn't depress me? 


The cultural information was interesting and the story was well written ,  but overall this book was absolutely heartbreaking.
