"A novel set in 1953 Tehran, against the backdrop of the Iranian Coup, about a young couple in love who are separated on the eve of their marriage, and who are reunited sixty years later, after having moved on to live independent lives in America, to discover the truth about what happened on that fateful day in the town square"-- Provided by publisher.

In 1953 Tehran, seventeen-year-old Roya meets the idealistic, politically active Bahman in a stationery shop, and the two quickly fall in love and become engaged, much to the disapproval of Bahman's class-conscious mother. They plan to marry in a civil ceremony, but a coup d'etat on the day of their wedding scuttles their plans, and Roya later receives a letter from Bahman ending their engagement abruptly. She immigrates to America to attend college shortly thereafter, marrying an American and settling in Boston; it is there, sixty years later, that she meets Bahman again and the two former lovers are able to at last piece together the truth behind their doomed romance and the forces that kept them apart. Kamali (Together Tea, 2013) paints an evocative portrait of 1950s Iran and its political upheaval, and she cleverly writes the heartbreak of Roya and Bahman's romance to mirror the tragic recent history of their country. Simultaneously briskly paced and deeply moving, this will appeal to fans of Khaled Hosseini and should find a wide audience. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
