Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran

Pomegranate Soup by Marsha Mehran (2005)
The three Aminpour sisters flee the turmoil of the Islamic Revolution in their native country of Iran. They finally make their way to a small Irish village where they open a café. The quirky characters that make up the town align with either the sisters or the town bully, Thomas McGuire, who would like to put them out of business. The author has included recipes for some Iranian specialties after describing them in detail. The contrast between the sisters’ lives in Iran and their new home in Ireland and the difference of cultures enrich this story.
