Superbly written this book discusses the trials and tribulations of a person who exchanged cultures for freedoms not found at home. From Tehran to the Land of the Free is a story of discovery, perseverance and vision. Mitra Thompson, the author, discusses the erosion of Iranian society as she matured into an adult. As a consequence of her observations her family gave up much to move away from the oncoming repression experienced by those who did not follow the national religion. America was beckoning her to come and taste rights not enjoyed by women in her former homeland. As the pleasures and pains of life unfurled for Mitra in her new home the author grasped enthusiastically each new life setting as it unfurled. I found this book intuitive, heartwarming and unique in its story telling. This is one book which should be part of your collection. Mark Davis, MD
