9780755334216: The Blood of Flowers

A sensuous and richly-imagined historical novel that centers on a skilled young carpet weaver, her arranged marriage, and her quest for self-determination in 17th-century Persia.
In 17th-century Iran, a 14-year-old woman believes she will be married within the year. But when her beloved father dies, she and her mother find themselves alone and without a dowry. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to sell the brilliant turquoise rug the young woman has woven to pay for their journey to Isfahan, where they will work as servants for her uncle, a rich rug designer in the court of the legendary Shah Abbas the Great.
Despite her lowly station, the young woman blossoms as a brilliant designer of carpets, a rarity in a craft dominated by men. But while her talent flourishes, her prospects for a happy marriage grow dim. Forced into a secret marriage to a wealthy man, the young woman finds herself faced with a daunting decision: forsake her own dignity, or risk everything she has in an effort to create a new life.

There is no better narrator for this exotic story than Aghdashloo, whose gorgeously accented English and mellifluous timbre match the novels lush language and style. Set in seventeenth-century Persia and filled with drama and poetic description, THE BLOOD OF FLOWERS will attract a variety of listeners who will be enchanted by Aghdashloos performance. Listeners who crave a work of historical fiction or an inspirational story of an individual crafting her own independent life will appreciate this fascinating work.

Descripción Headline Publishing Group. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Blood of Flowers, Anita Amirrezvani, Set in seventeenth-century Iran, THE BLOOD OF FLOWERS is the powerful and haunting story of a young girl's journey from innocence to adulthood. Not to be missed by readers who loved THE KITE RUNNER or HALF OF A YELLOW SUN. A village girl's dreams of marriage end on the death of her father. Cast on the mercy of relatives in fabled Isfahan, she and her mother are reduced to servitude until she reveals a talent for designing carpets - an invaluable skill. Hope is short-lived, for a disastrous, headstrong act results in the girl's disgrace. Caught between forces she can barely comprehend, she faces a life lived at the whim of others - unless she is prepared to risk everything and choose a future based on her own strength and will. THE BLOOD OF FLOWERS tells an unforgettable story: a tale of sensuality, of the treachery of friendship, of the power of love, and of the fragile possibility of finding happiness against all odds.
