virgoletteThe amazing debut Children of the Jacaranda Tree is a family saga at heart but, as it’s set in Iran between 1983 and 2011, the tale is harrowing and at the family are at the mercy of politics and revolution. Sahar Delijani drew on the experiences of her own family and friends, making this debut all the more moving.
