Together Tea


Book #51 Read in 2013
Together Tea by Marjan Kamali

Mina, her parents and her two brothers head to America from Iran during the Iran-Iraqi war.  This book talks about Mina's assimilation to American life, how her mother is still trying to arrange a husband for her, and on the return visit that Mina and her mother take to Iran when Mina is in college. 

This book does a nice job describing the difficulty of fitting in to a new country, and fitting in when visiting the old country.  The characters are interesting and well-developed.  There is humor and romance in this book and the writing style is nice--a flavor of chick lit, but more substance. 

I enjoyed this book and recommend it.
