All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Rebecca Traister
Anahita's Woven Riddle - Meghan Nuttall Sayres A quite charming coming of age/choosing a suitor tale set in 19th century Iran with all sort of interesting bits about weaving and dyeing, changing women's roles in muslim countries, nomadic peoples, the problem of figuring out how to balance one's duty to oneself and one's family - well really its all stuff that interests me so I had great fun. The book is well written, although it needed a slightly better copy editor -there were some typos and a few homophones that needed fixing. The pacing flagged a little bit in a couple of places and the unwanted suitor became more of a caricature as the book progressed, but these were minor flaws that didn't destroy my enjoyment.

If these are subjects that interest you then I think you will like the book.
