Just Finished Reactions: The Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani

The Blood of Flowers - Anita Amirrezvani

What I liked most about this book were the myth-like stories interwoven within the prose. 

A well researched look into the live of a girl's journey to adulthood in the 17th century. I loved any scene when she was making a rug, her true passion which is withheld from her due to her gender. 

Through many twists and turns this story kept me wanting to know more and more. A wonderful look at the evolution of this your girl to a woman.
