DRM free Kindle Mobi and ePub for other devices. What was it like to live in Isfahan as the foreign wife of an Iranian University professor in the run up to and during the revolution of 1979, when the Shah was overthrown and Khomeini created the Islamic Republic of Iran? The author finds herself in the middle of a revolution in an alien country with her husband and baby son, without internet, social media or even a telephone and where television and radio broadcasts are censored so you never know what is true and what is gossip. The author evokes the stark contrast between everyday life and the escalation of violence across the country including the increasing demonstrations of hatred against foreigners, in particular Americans, and the English language. You feel the tension grow between friends and colleagues who will have to decide whether they can live in an Islamic Republic. You'll get 1 ZIP file
