    Her recipes are a mouthwatering showcase of a beautiful country. At the time, NSW clubs and pubs were subject to strict licensing laws which limited trading hours and regulated alcohol prices and sale conditions. With her father, a wealthy general, high-spirited Maryam and her two sisters live a privileged life. Her return to the family home is noted by a family servant and - her secret out - she is summarily banished while Ali is brutally punished. Despite several legal appeals, Saffron served 17 months in jail.

    And that was my biggest sticking point with this book. To view it, click here. Maryam and her sisters, Mairy, the eldest, and Mara, the youngest, are all very different. The rest of the drama - the troubled mother-daughter relationship was painfully wrought out, and ended in a bizarre snowed-out scenario that puts Sara, Ali and Maryam in the same place, and they are forced into acknowledging the truths of the past. I love the exotic dangerous Middle East!

    While daughter Sara, and husband Edward feel abandoned and confused, Maryam feels reborn. Most of the recipes seemed to be either foods that evoked a particular childhood memory or foods that the author learned from an acquaintance during her more recent travels to Iran. On a rainy day in London the dark secrets and troubled past of Maryam Mazar surface violently, with tragic consequences for her daughter, Sara, and her newly orphaned nephew. Nothing exceptional about this book really.

For most of the short novel, Sara narrates in first person. It's always been hard to understand Maryam, who has times of withdrawing into herself in a dark way, especially when news from Iran arrives, either by mail or the news media.

The book also alleges that Saffron lent money to several other prominent Sydney businessmen including Frank Theeman whose controversial Kings Cross development was the target of Juanita Nielsen's campaign as well as former TNT boss Sir Peter Abeles and property tycoon Sir Paul Strasser, both of whom received knighthoods during Askin's premiership.
