About the Author

Roya Movafegh is a multimedia artist. Her work explores the dynamics of assimilation as well as the multiple facets of cultural identity. In addition to her photo publication in Eileen William's Wishes in Black & White featured on Oprah, her work has also appeared in Them=Us: Photographic Journeys Across Our Cultural Boundaries. Born in Austria to Iranian parents, she and her family moved to Tehran in 1976 only to escape it five years later due to the persecutions they faced as Baha'is. From an early age, she learned what it meant to be a foreigner, a person on the run, a refugee, and an immigrant. After living in Germany, the United States, and Canada, she moved to Harlem, New York, in 1998, where she founded The Young Harlem Photographers, a photography workshop for children and youth, which won the New York Times award at the Art of Change Group Show.

I finished reading the book last night and didn't want it to end!
It was so beautiful, so well written. I was completely absorbed into it.

Format: Paperback
this book is breathtaking. i actually sat down and read it in one sitting...just couldn't put it down. it is "the diary of anne frank" meets "the alchemist" - a harrowing tale of escape from religious persecution complimented by allegorical musings on the nature of freedom. i felt so close to the characters that i laughed and cried with them -- literally bursting into tears near the end. i couldn't recommend a book more highly.

I remained choked up from the first paragraph to the end hearing the tales of people with no camel. The author told a heart wrenching account of her family's escape from religious persecution. I fell in love with each of the characters that helped her family along the way. There were so many "hold your breath" moments when you were not sure if they would get to safety. The book was so entertaining and yet so sad to know that there are such cruel people in the world that believe they have to right to take a life based on one's religious beliefs. Bravo Roya an a great book and on documenting this tale for our history.

Format: Kindle Edition
I finished your book several days back and wanted to write and thank you for letting us (the world) know this story. You laid so much bare for us and I can only imagine the courage it took to dig so deep and find the right words to honor the experience. My heart was in my throat at times, my normally stoic eyes with tears at other turns. What has stayed with me are the images of the the dust - the butter tea - the strength your family gained from knowing others were out there praying for all of you during your journey.....thank you for this story.

Format: Paperback
The young author's voice is innocent and honest. Her tales of cruelty are plain and simple. Chapter by chapter, the reader is able to follow her family through some outrageous circumstances by western standards. The young author's wholesome approach to what is happening around her is at times heartbreaking and brought me to tears.

The last few chapters were confusing because I am not familiar with Persian folktales.
