I am reviewing a copy of In the Shadows of the Shah’s through Lion Hudson LTD and Netgalley:




Farifteh V. Robb came to the Christian Faith at the height of the Iranian Revolution.  This book is the story of a woman torn between two worlds, and the difficult choices she had to make.




Have you ever found yourself wondering what it was like to have survived a revolution?  Have you wondered what it was like to start anew, with a new religion, a new nationality and starting new with a new discipline?  Have you wondered what it was like to fall in love, deeply, despite facing the obstacles of a burgeoning relationship?





In the Shadow of the Shah’s the fascinating and moving story of a woman’s journey between two cultures – her Persian Muslim heritage and her  life as a Christian in Scotland.  This book tells of the challenges she faced in an Iran torn apart by political turmoil, and in her new life in the UK. 




This book is written with compassion, and gentle wit this is the story of a life lived in faith in a multicultural world.  I find In the Shadows of the Shah’s worthy of five out of five stars!



Happy Reading!
