The Good Daughter sat by her mother’s side and heeded her mother’s words

The Good Daughter sat by her mother’s side and heeded her mother’s words. When a man looked at her, she lowered her eyes at once. And she was very, very pretty, with a sweet face and long, flowing hair just like the maidens in Persian miniatures. Over the years The Good Daughter became a taunt, a warning, an omen. My mother and I. were alone in the house where she could no longer afford to live, and when the photograph slipped loose from a bundle of letters she was upstairs sleeping with an open bottle of Valium on the table beside her bed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir of the author's mother's "hidden life". Just the premise of the story grabbed me: as a young woman, Jasmin Darznik finds a wedding picture. The bride is her then 13-year-old mother, Lili; the groom is a man she never knew

I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir of the author's mother's "hidden life". The bride is her then 13-year-old mother, Lili; the groom is a man she never knew. At first her mother is reluctant to tell Jasmin the story of her life before marrying Jasmin's father. Then, Jasmin begins receiving cassette tapes in the mail on which Lili recounts her life story. I was hooked, had high expectations and wasn't disappointed.

We were a world of two, my mother and I, until I started turning into an American girl. That's when she began telling me about The Good Daughter. It became a taunt, a warning, an omen.Jasmin Darznik came to America from Iran when she was only three years old, and she grew up knowing very little about her family's history. When she was in her early twenties, on a day shortly following her father's death, Jasmin was helping her mother move; a photograph fell from a stack of old letters. The girl pictured was her mother. She was wearing a wedding veil, and at her side stood a man whom Jasmin had never seen before.At first, Jasmin's mother, Lili, refused to speak about the photograph, and Jasmin returned to her own home frustrated and confused. But a few months later, she received from her mother the first of ten cassette tapes that would bring to light the wrenching hidden story of her family's true origins in Iran: Lili's marriage at thirteen, her troubled history of abuse and neglect, and a daughter she was forced to abandon in order to escape that life. The final tape revealed that Jasmin's sister, Sara - The Good Daughter - was still living in Iran.In this sweeping, poignant, and beautifully written memoir, Jasmin weaves the stories of three generations of Iranian women into a unique tale of one family's struggle for freedom and understanding. The result is an enchanting and unforgettable story of secrets, betrayal, and the unbreakable mother-daughter bond.
