Climbing Over Grit| صعودازسختی‌ها

Hello everyone!
This week I am excited to announce that the novel I have been working on called “Climbing Over Grit” is finally going to be available for purchase on amazon on Saturday. I will post the link on my blog when it is ready. Here is a sneak peek of the cover and a little description of the book.
cover grit
The year is 1954 in Shiraz, Iran. Three-year-old Najma is struggling in a family who is wealthy in possessions but impoverished in love and emotions. CLIMBING OVER GRIT follows the journey of Najma as she is forced into a marriage at the age of eleven and faces the challenges of motherhood with an abusive husband, all while the eight-year war with Iraq is taking place. This novel displays the life of a family that has to pay a huge price for making a mistake while trying to protect a loved one. CLIMBING OVER GRIT will offer a realistic and heart-wrenching portrayal of life in Iran during the Monarchy and the fanatical government, a reality that the media has and will always fail to convey.
I have been working on this for years and have more novels coming out in the near future. I hope that you will all get a copy of my very first book and enjoy it!
I would also like to thank you all for your continuing love and support. I will continue posting short stories on my blog as of next week!
