Book Review: The Saffron Kitchen



The Saffron Kitchen by Yasmin Crowder

I saw this book listed in a guide as a potential book discussion title, so I thought I would preview it, and I'm so glad I did.

This is a beautifully written novel that encompasses a lot of issues in its meandering pages - cultural differences (Britain and Iran), mother and daughter relationships, lost loves, identity struggles and family destruction. I read this 250 page novel in a day, and loved the characters, the writing, and the images it evoked in my mind.

This is a lovely novel that I look forward to discussing with my group later this year!
