Marjan Kamali delivers a story about love and fate set against the political unrest of Iran in 1953 which contributes to the separation of young lovers Roya and Bahman. Through the story of Roya and Bahman, Kamali explores love, loss, duty, remembrance, and the power of fate - across time, space, and cultures. I recommend this novel to anyone interested in sweeping and thought-provoking writing of the heart. Beautifully written and tear-jerking! I criiiiiiiiiiiiied.

The Stationery Shop is one of the most beautifully written novels I have read in a long time. The masterful plot brings us to a lost time and culture, but also transcends time and country. In a story set against the upheaval of 1953 Tehran, we discover how events change the destiny of two teenagers who meet in a book and stationery shop and fall in love. This novel of political dreams, family loyalty, lingering memories, love, and fate will haunt you long after the story ends.”
