The Rug Dealer

When Raba Zacharai suddenly passes away, his daughter Shiraz inherits the Persian rug shop he built in New Haven on leaving Iran in 1979. As an unexpected love affair develops with a dangerously beautiful customer and her mother's secret longing to return to Iran after decades of exile grows more urgent, Shiraz must negotiate the costly business of carpets, family, duty, and love.
