store, stocked with fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and thick pads of writing paper, also carries
translations of literature from all over the world. And when Mr. Fakhri introduces her to his other favorite
customer handsome Bahman , with his burning passion for justice and a shared love for Rumi's poetry
Roya loses her heart at once. But around them, life in Tehran is changing.
On the eve of their marriage, Roya heads to the town square to meet with Bahman. Suddenly, shockingly,
violence erupts: a coup d'etat that forever changes their country's future. Bahman never arrives.
Roya must piece her life back together. Her parents, wanting her to be safe, enroll her in college in
California, where she meets and marries another man. But, nearly sixty years later, an accident of fate
finally brings her the answer she has always wanted to know Why did you leave? Where did you go?
