It is the 1960s in California and Sharon is a typical California girl who has gone off to college...until she meets and marries an Iranian stucent and moves with him to Iran. Her naive dreams of living as a Persian Princess turn into a living nightmare when she finds herself traped in Tehran, abused by her husband and denied justice by a culture that demeans women. She finds Christ, and the courage to escape, but must leave her two young sons behind. Exiled in Israel, she experiences adventures both wonderful and terrible as she finds a home--and love--among a community of Messianic Jews and American believers. But her mother's heart never stops yearing to be reunited with the sons she left in Iran. This memoir is a timely look at three faiths by a Christian who lived and worked in Iran and Israel.
