Review of Beyond The Third Garden by I. J. Sarfeh

Beyond The Third Garden by I. J. Sarfeh

Paree could not even think about leaving Iran to go back to England.  Not even when her husband, Mike’s job in the oil industry transferred him back.  She chose to stay in Iran, even when she knew if she had to live alone, she wouldn’t have any reason not to start drinking first thing in the morning.  The pain was too bad for her to go back.  So she stayed, alone in her misery, and tried to make a life for herself.

Reza hated the orphanage the police brought him to after That Night.  The only happiness he had was when he was with his friend, Fereshteh, because she understood him when he didn’t want to talk, and she knew what he was thinking when he decided he was going to leave the awful place.

On a trip to the mountains, Paree discovered a freezing Reza, sleeping under a tree, crying out in his sleep.  She takes him in and together they figure out how to help each other rid themselves of the pain, guilt and fear that was crippling them both.

But Mike is still very much in love with Paree and really wants her to come visit him in England.  Paree faces her biggest fear of all and she and Reza go, but there are no promises of a future.  Can Mike let go enough to accept Paree and Reza as a family?  Or will the secrets of That Night and the heartache and guilt that Paree feel break the family forever?

I really liked this story.  It’s hard to believe this is the author’s first in this genre because it’s very well written and really tugged on my heart when I read about what happened to the characters. I hope the author writes more like this.  4.8 stars!
