Ariana's bitter childhood battles with the outside world and her narcissistic mother threaten to consume her soul.

As a Christian minority growing up in Tehran, Iran, Ariana faces harsh physical and emotional abuse from her mother and witnesses the same pain inflicted on her siblings. Her daily awakenings leave her unguarded against her mother's wrath. Despite this, Ariana's only true safe haven comes fleetingly in the presence of her loving papa, Jacob. However, he is often away for weeks on end as a truck driver, leaving her constantly yearning for his return.

"You know your mother loves you very much. If she punishes you, it's not because she's mean. It's not her fault. She is a nervous woman who cannot control her anger."

As she grows up, her search for hope is what she holds onto as she struggles to not only survive her mother's tirades but the loss of friends and family in terror attacks and political involvement during the revolution, the drastic regime change to an Islamic government, and a city embattled with Iraq.

  • Fantastic!

    by on

    A gripping and heart-wrenching story of a young girl growing up in Iran, having to battle being a Christian in a Muslim society, enduring a mother who is psychologically unstable and violent, waiting for a father who is rarely home (and is her only saving grace), and praying day and night her home is not bombed. In so many ways, as a woman, I could relate, but NO ONE IN THE UNITED STATES has had to quake in their shoes every moment as she and her family did. We have not had a war touch this soil since the Civil War. And after surviving and being welcomed to the U.S., she not only found a way to forgive but to also take care of her mother. She is the epitome of what Jesus wants us to be and do: Love thy neighbor as thyself and to forgive one another’s trespasses as He forgives ours. I so admire her on every level. May God bless her and all those she loves (which according to her is everyone).
