The Stationary Shop

The Stationary Shop by Marjan Kamali (free with Kindle Unlimited) was a delightful story from start to finish. Roya and Bahman meet at a stationary story in Iran and fall in love through political upheaval and the disapproval of Bahman’s mother. When they are to meet and elope, a cout d’etat prevents their meeting and ends their story. It isn’t until the end of the book and the end of their lives that we and they learn what happened on that day. I enjoyed almost everything about this story. My only two complaints were that the first third was slower than I would have liked and that there were a few unnecessary trails and unresolved issues that still are niggling for me. Otherwise, though, this is a sad and wonderful tale that’s easy to pick up from the library or for free for your Kindle.
