This book didn't do it for me, unfortunately. But I expect it was bad choice, bad timing, and other people will have a very different reaction.

From the cover . . . "Peacock the Jew is nine years old and living in the Esfahan ghetto when she marries Solomon the Man. She is the descendant of a three-thousand-year-old tribe of Jews -- the oldest community id diaspora, a people largely unknown to the outside world. He is a singer in the royal court, a wealthy man known for his good looks and his charm. A decade later, she will become the first woman in her ghetto ever to have left her husband.

"Against the backdrop of two hundred years of history, Çry of the Peacock traces the story of a Jewish woman caught in the turmoil of twentieth-century Iran."
