Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "When Noor returns to her native Iran for the first time in thirty years, so much about her homeland is different. But Café Leila -- the restaurant Noor’s family has run for three generations -- hasn’t changed. Zod, Noor’s father, is still at the café’s helm, a much-loved patriarch offering laughter, solace, and nourishment to the makeshift family of regulars and waiters who call Café Leila home. With her discontented, very American teenage daughter, Lily, reluctantly at her side, Noor struggles to maintain a semblance of family life. But Tehran is a place of contradictions, where grace and brutal violence both have a foothold, and it’s not long before rebellious Lily is caught up in both. As the novel folds back in time, stories emerge of Noor’s ancestors, particularly of her mother, who was killed when Noor was a teenager. As past and present converge, Noor begins to understand her place in -- and her responsibility to -- this world and to the many souls who have sought refuge at the café."--Provided by the publisher.
