The Blood of Flowers is set in 17th century Persia and takes the reader on a journey in the life of a young woman who suddenly loses her father and is thrust into the life of a servant in her uncle's wealthy household. The death of her father has left her without a dowry and no hope for a respectable marriage, but her love for carpet making may be her ticket to learning that life is not always as we hope and dream it should be.
This novel opened my eyes to the realities that women of all cultures face in society. This book teaches that there is honor in all things good, whether you are single, married, divorced, widowed, a mother of ten or a mother of none. We all have a purpose on this earth and should be proud of our destinies. This book is a must read for all as it weaves the heart and soul in the same manner that our heroine weaves her destiny through her carpets.
♥♥♥♥ - A honorable read!!
