We were a world of two, my mother and I, until I started turning into an American girl. That's when she began telling me about The Good Daughter. It became a taunt, a warning, an omen.Jasmin Darznik came to America from Iran when she was only three years old, and she grew up knowing very little about her family's history. When she was in her early twenties, on a day shortly following her father's death, Jasmin was helping her mother move; a photograph fell from a stack of old letters. The girl pictured was her mother. She was wearing a wedding veil, and at her side stood a man whom Jasmin had never seen before.At first, Jasmin's mother, Lili, refused to speak about the photograph, and Jasmin returned to her own home frustrated and confused. But a few months later, she received from her mother the first of ten cassette tapes that would bring to light the wrenching hidden story of her family's true origins in Iran: Lili's marriage at thirteen, her troubled history of abuse and neglect, and a daughter she was forced to abandon in order to escape that life. The final tape revealed that Jasmin's sister, Sara - The Good Daughter - was still living in Iran.In this sweeping, poignant, and beautifully written memoir, Jasmin weaves the stories of three generations of Iranian women into a unique tale of one family's struggle for freedom and understanding. The result is an enchanting and unforgettable story of secrets, betrayal, and the unbreakab biographies,ethnic and national,islam,memoirs,politics and social sciences,religion and spirituality,science and math,social science,social sciences,women in islam Islam, Grand Central Publishing

We were a world of two, my mother and I, until I started turning into an American girl. That's when she started talking to me about the Good Daughter. The Good Daughter lived in Iran. She didn't talk back as I had learned to do in this broken-down, devil-riddled country. In fact, she didn't talk much at all. The Good Daughter listened. She understood-- always-- about manners and modesty. She sat by her mother's side and lowered her eyes whenever a man looked at her. And she was very, very pretty, with a sweet face and long, flowing hair just like the maidens in the Persian miniatures.The Good Daughter became a taunt. A warning. An omen. One day when Jasmin Darznik is helping her mother pack up to move, a photograph falls from a stack of old letters. The girl in it is her mother. She is wearing a wedding veil, and at her side stands a man whom Jasmin has never seen before. At first, Jasmin's mother, Lili, refuses to share any information. Months later, Jasmin receives the first of ten casette tapes revealing a wrenching hidden story of her family's true origins in Iran: her mother's troubled history of abuse and neglect, and a daughter she was forced to abandon in order to escape that life. The final tape reveals that her sister, Sara, is still living in Iran. Darznik skillfully weaves the stories of three generations of Iranian women's battles with husbands and poverty into a unique tale of one family's twisted path to freedom.
