ONE OF NPR'S BEST BOOKS OF 2019 From the award-winning author of Together Tea--a debut novel hailed as "compassionate, funny, and wise" by Jill Davis, bestselling author of Girls' Poker Night--comes a powerful love story exploring loss, reconciliation, and the quirks of fate. Roya is a dreamy, idealistic teenager living in 1953 Tehran who, amidst the political upheaval of the time, finds a literary oasis in kindly Mr. Fakhri's neighborhood book and stationery shop. She always feels safe in his dusty store, overflowing with fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and thick pads of soft writing paper. When Mr. Fakhri, with a keen instinct for a budding romance, introduces Roya to his other favorite customer--handsome Bahman, who has a burning passion for justice and a love for Rumi's poetry--she loses her heart at once. And, as their romance blossoms, the modest little stationery shop remains their favorite place in all of Tehran. A few short months later, on the eve of their marriage, Roya agrees to meet Bahman at the town square, but suddenly, violence erupts--a result of the coup d'etat that forever changes their country's future. In the chaos, Bahman never shows. For weeks, Roya tries desperately to contact him, but her efforts are fruitless. With a sorrowful heart, she resigns herself to never seeing him again. Until, more than sixty years later, an accident of fate leads her back to Bahman and offers her a chance to ask him the questions that have haunted her for more than half a century: Why did he leave? Where did he go? How was he able to forget her? The Stationery Shop is a beautiful and timely exploration of devastating loss, unbreakable family bonds, and the overwhelming power of love.… (mais)

A very enjoyable read. The author masterfully creates scenes using aromas, sounds, light, and weather. Her characters are well developed and believable. There are plenty of twists and turns to understanding how and why these characters made the choices they did or interacted as they did. This is a very unique story. The setting in Iran in the 1960s and later in the US was interesting, as well. I enjoyed the cultural details and how those cultural expectations influenced the story. ( )

Heartbreakingly beautiful. Such a beautiful story set on the backdrop of the Persian culture (Iran). A story of great Iove and even greater loss. ( )

A lovely, touching love story (actually more than just one) that spans two generations, two countries, and several lives.

This may not be as epic as Love in the Time of Cholera, but it is definitely just as touching and the storytelling equally heartfelt. ( )

This one got lost in my TBR list (the downside of the Kindle) and oh, how I regret not reading this sooner. The story is as lovely as the cover (and yes, I totally pick my books by the cover and the synopsis). The writing is gorgeous, the food descriptions lush, and it's such a GOOD story. I loved the historical aspects of it, too - I learned a lot about Iran.

Late accolades for this, but just a wonderful story. ( )

Lovely book. I would have loved the recipes of the food. A wonderful love story. Revolution does not always lead to good change. ( )

"I made an appointment to see him." She said it as if she were seeing the dentist or a therapist or the pushy refrigerator salesman who had promised her and Walter a lifetime guarantee of cold milk and crisp vegetables and unspoiled cheese if only they would buy this brand-new model.
