On page 267, Shirin comments that her father resembles Rembrandt's Old Jew Seated. It is ironic that it is one whose reproduction Isaac kept above his desk. Here is a link to a picture of the painting.

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

Thanks for the link, Laura!

Did you imagine Isaac this way?

Looking at the image made me wish to think of a painting that could describe the way I perceive Shirin.

Surprisingly, I did! I guess Dalia must have done a good job of describing what he looked like upon his return from prison. :smileyhappy:

Thanks for providing the link to that picture - that's so sad, isn't it?
 
I wish I'd been here for this discussion when it was 'happening', as I just love to post thoughts as I'm reading through chapters.
 
This book moved well from beginning to end - didn't take long for the tension of the story to get started and it held right through.
 
I think every reader breathed a big sigh of relief when the little family finally got moving out of there.
 
I'm not a war lover, but when I read of violence like this, I just wanna' go out and shoot somebody!
