I was very excited to order and read this book given Shirin Ebadi's status as a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. The story relates the family history of a close friend of Ms. Ebadi's and the tragic lives of the family's three brothers.

Although the beginning of the book seemed disorganized and a little confusing, things settled down as I began to understand the main characters and their personalities. Although Ms. Ebadi is the narrator, the book is not really about her or her life. It is about her friend's family and three brothers, all of whom chose different political beliefs and associations.

From this book I gained insight into the culture, traditions, religion, and politics of Iran from the 1900's until today. I gained additional respect for the people of Iran and the stresses and the hardships they live with daily. I applaud Ms. Ebadi for relating what must have been a difficult story. Even though the book itself may not directly change the status of people in Iran, she has done what the Iranian sociologist Ali Shariati suggested (on page 252 of Ebadi's book) and that is "if you can't eliminate injustice, at least tell everyone about it". Thank you, Ms. Ebadi, for telling us all about it.

I don't write reviews. But I had to comment on this book. I felt that I could not read this book and then not have my voice join Shirin's in protesting the oppression the people of Iran are under. I hope everyone who reads this book will comment and let others know that the story is being heard and hearts are being touched.

Thanks, Shirin, for having the courage and taking the risk to share this story. Thanks, Pari, for allowing your family's story be told.

I have tremendous respect for Shirin Ebadi, having read her book Iran Awakening, and the modern peacemakers book Shirin Ebadi. This is a woman committed to Human Rights as well as love for her country. She shows in this book three different perspectives of the three brothers who were family friends for many years. For those of us who wonder how perspectives are shaped, and lives lived so differently in one family and all of the Moslem fait she sheds light on just that, while making clear her deep need for social justice in Iran. Dr. Ebadi is a key founder of the Nobel Woman's Imitative, a group of Nobel Prize winning women working together to raise awareness in creating nonviolent social change. I consider this book a must read for those interested in the struggle for human rights in Iran,or anywhere else.

I gained a much greater understanding of what the people of Iran have gone through. It is a story that needs to be told and shared. No one should have to live like this. I am grateful for the openness of Shirin and Pari and their willingness to share their experience so others will know the truth of what has happened. I am so sorry for their pain, but amazed at their courage and determination to survive and make a difference. Thank you.
