Marsha Mehran (1977-2014) was born in Tehran, Iran, left during the Revolution, at age 2, with her family. She then lived in such diverse places as Buenos Aires, The United States, Australia and Ireland. Marsha's talent and wit was evident from an early age: she became fluent in speaking Farsi, Spanish and English at age 6; she was identified as a gifted child at age 8 in The USA; and she excelled at learning to play the piano, nurturing her musical talent at the Elder Conservatory of Music in Adelaide. Her first book, Pomegranate Soup, published in 2005, was translated into 15 languages and published in more than 20 countries. The continuation, Rosewater and Soda Bread, was a hit sequel in Marsha's vision for a series of seven books. The third title, Pistachio Rain, was scheduled for publication in 2014 but disrupted by her demise in April that year. Her stand-alone book has been published in Australia and New Zealand, by Harper Collins, as The Margaret Thatcher School of Beauty and by Amazon Crossing as The Saturday Night School of Beauty. Marsha Mehran passed away, lonely, in Ireland in her Lecanvey cottage in 2014 at the age of 36. She leaves behind a literary legacy that will continue to thrive in her legion of fans across the globe. For more information, please visit: http://www.marshamehran.com/

The further adventures of the three sisters with a possible mermaid, a pirate radio priest and more food. It's a gentle series set in 80's Ireland but some of the characters seem to have very little depth. You would need to have read the previous book Pomegranite Soup to really get whats going on....

I didn't like this one quite as much as I had the first book, but it was still interesting and better than most of the fiction out there these days. I'll certainly pick up the next book that this author writes. For the complete review, please go here:http://www.epinions.com/review/Book_Rosewater_And...
