The Remarkable story of the daughter of a once powerful and wealthy shazdeh, or prince, Farmaian tells a fascinating tale of growing up in the 1930s in a Persian harem compound in Tehran. Breaking with Muslim tradition, she became an independent woman and found herself arrested as a counterrevolutionary. A dramtic window on Iran's journey through the twentieth century.

I recommend this book to both Iranian and other cultures to read to know about Iran and as the author states what we did wrong that we ended up deserting our country and chose to live abroad. Very well written and very clear insight through events.
