For all his wealth and success, Asher Malacouti--the head of a prosperous Jewish family living in the Iranian town of Kermanshah in the early twentieth century--cannot have the one thing he desires above all: a son. His young wife Rakhel, trapped in an oppressive marriage at a time when a woman's worth is measured by her fertility, is made desperate by her failure to conceive, and grows jealous and vindictive.

Well written. An insight into a totally different culture in the early twentieth century, in Iran, when women were valued only for their ability to procreate, and maligned and abused if they did not conform. It makes one appreciate the society we live in .
