The Brevity of Roses, a great read

Posted on: May 20, 2011

The Brevity of Roses

I just read a wonderful book I wanted to share with you. This would be an ideal beach or holiday read, since the season is coming up.

A well written book; exploring the nature of human relationships, miscommunication and misunderstandings; filled with compelling, real characters that you can’t help but cheer for. The main character, Jalal, a good looking hunk, a Persian poet and a troubled soul is surrounded by love but doesn’t realize it as he dwells in self absorption and misunderstanding. He is easy to fall in love with and you want him to find true happiness as you follow him through immense joy and incredible sadness. The supporting cast; his delightful family members, the women he encounters and members of his community are well defined also, making this a most enjoyable read. I highly recommend this first novel by Linda Cassidy Lewis and hope to see more from this author.
