Today, let’s dance our moments together
Why? To-morrow, we’ll be uniting
with ones gone Seven Thousand Years”

  1. This is a Wonderful book. I was totally there living Nooshie’s four generations with her. I loved the thought provoking details she brought forth as she was living the intimate details of her own as well as her mother, grandmother and great grandmother’s lives. Thank you for such an enjoyable read.

  2. Recently, I read Nooshie Motaref’s novel, Iran: A Persian Tapestry, about a Persian family living in Iran from 1896-1979.
    I found her book very enlightening because this one family reflected all the political conflicts of the country as it went from a kingdom, then to a secular dictatorship under the Shah, and finally to a religious dictatorship under the ayatollahs.
    Right now this same story seems to be working itself out in other Middle-Eastern countries like Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and Libya.
