A refugee from revolutionary Iran, Simin Sarikhani had fled her home, leaving all that she had to make a new life on the other side of the world. Although no stranger to life's challenges, she would face none so great as the death of her only child, Zhubin, at the age of 21.
This heartfelt account describes one mother's journey through the unbearable pain of a child's death to find what had seemed forever lost: hope, meaning, love and even joy.
Guided by the letters her son wrote to her to be read after his death, and his other insightful writings, Simin was able to find light in the darkness. In this book, she shares not only her own story but also Zhubin's simple words, with the wish that they may also bring some comfort to other bereaved parents.
Simin Sarikhani was born in Iran, and now divides her time between London and Montreal.
Finding Blossoms in the Darkness is her first book. 30 colour
