The young, pretty, and unliberated wife of a successful doctor, Chloe Fowler has barely arrived in Iran when her husband is summoned home unexpectedly. Left alone to explore the heady wonders of this exotic country on her own, Chloe is inexplicably drawn to its mysterious customs and traditions. As she travels deeper into a strange and tantalizing culture of veiled women and seductive, dangerous men, she discovers an Iran the tourists never see - on a life-affirming journey of enlightenment, self-discovery, and love that will transform her conventional life forever.
